Three Bean Salad with Yogurt-Buttermilk Dressing | Michian Made Recipes

Hi, Mitten Crate fans! I’m Lori, and I’m the author of the food blog Foxes Love Lemons. I live in Ferndale, and went to culinary school at Schoolcraft College. Shortly after I graduated, I started blogging to share simple yet special recipes that encourage people to enjoy the act of cooking at home. 
Even though it’s September, I have a feeling we still have a few more warm days in store for us, so I’m not ready to give up on cold summer salads just yet. This protein-packed three bean salad features kidney beans, chickpeas and Safie Specialty Foods Dill Pickle Beans from the August edition of Mitten Crate. The bean combo is tossed with tomatoes, onions and a dressing made with Greek yogurt, buttermilk, herbs and spices.
Please enjoy, and be sure to check out my blog, as well as follow me on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for new recipes!
