Barbecue Bean Salad

Yes, we know you've slathered your meat in barbecue sauce, but trust us -- it'll enhance your bean salad, too.


Beans are a barbecue staple, perhaps because they go with so many types of grilled fixings. They're also packed with nutrients we all need for optimal health: fiber, protein, magnesium, thiamin and much more. This version of bean salad calls for barbecue sauce, which is a great way to pair your meat with your sides. You can also make a non-alcoholic version of this dish by substituting the beer it calls for with a non-alcoholic brew or even soda. Serve it with a slotted spoon to avoid having a pool of dressing on your plate.
