Mixed Bean Salad with Flank Steak

Mixed Bean Salad with Flank Steak

A colorful trio of beans enlivens this fiber- and iron-rich main-dish salad. Look for pink beans on the Latin foods aisle of your supermarket; if you can't find them, substitute light kidney beans.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)


  • 2 cups (1-inch) cut green beans (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped Basic Grilled Flank Steak (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced shallots (about 1 small)
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can pink beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can black soybeans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Steam green beans 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Place green beans in a large bowl. Add Basic Grilled Flank Steak, shallots, pink beans, and soybeans; toss to combine.

Combine vinegar and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over bean mixture; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill.
