A family favorite (even my kids love it) that is quick and easy:

Warm Cannelini bean salad:

1 Can cannelini beans(white Kidney beans) drained and rinsed
olive oil about 1 Tbsp
garlic (1 clove)
1 tomato - chopped
fresh sage - chopped(5-10 leaves depending on your taste)
salt & pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese (to taste)

On the stove warm the oil and garlic, add sage and beans. Heat until warm. season with salt and pepper. Add tomato and remove from heat. Stir and serve with a little parmesan on top.

Boil together 1 cup vinegar,however much stevia you need to sweeten it to your taste,1/4 cup olive oil (or less) and some cracked black pepper. Let this cool and drain & rinse 1 can kidney beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can white bean,1 can corn. While these are draining,chop 2 bell peppers (any color)a couple stalks celery, a couple of carrots and an onion (purple looks best)
Mix these all together and refridgerate. You can alter any ingredients to you rown taste, but this approx. how I make it. If you want, you can add a tomato just before serving or add canned tomatoes even rotel. This keeps very well (esp if you omit tomato) and can be eaten as a side dish, a salad or even main dish.

Go to the Taste Of Home website and search "Alfresco Bean Salad". It is made with black, red and garbanzo/chickpea beans. 2/3 C serving is only 146 calories.

I make a three bean salad but I usually use kidney beans and garbanzo beans from cans, the green beans I use are usually the frozen kind.
Drain and rinse all beans well.
In a bowl, combine equal amounts of white vinegar and water. Add about a tablespoon of sugar, some pepper. In this brine I put thinly sliced onions and let them sit for a while. Then I top it with the beans and mix. Let stand for several hours. This is good for days in refrigerator.
