Come summer, we go bonkers for bean salads. Why? For starters, they tend to rely on the one kitchen utensil we love most when the mercury is riding high outside: the can opener.
We love a good summertime cookout with everyone ohh-ing over grilled baby-back ribs as the star attraction, or a languid summer picnic with a basket of fried chicken. But if living well means living in a certain kind of balance, then we love those other kinds of summer dinners as well -- light, simple and chock full of the fresh flavors of the season. This 3-Bean Caprese Salad falls into that latter camp, with its summer-ripe tomatoes, fresh parboiled green beans, and a healthy serving of sweet basil.
When you stock your pantry with beans, you always have a terrific lean source of protein, fiber, iron, and B vitamins handy. Plus, beans are "good carbs," the complex carbohydrates that give you more energy. Stretch beyond the old-fashioned baked beans (although they're pretty delicious, too). We're talking three-bean chili made with black, kidney, and small white beans -- a winner with two thirds less fat and half the calories of chili that uses even lean ground beef.

Canned beans, such as kidney, garbanzo, or cannellini, can be the basis for countless inexpensive meals. Of course, cooking dried beans from scratch is even cheaper and gives you better texture, flavor, and less sodium. But if you're a last-minute cook like me, even the quick-soak method takes more time than I often have to get dinner on the table.
