  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

Steps

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You could use three-bean salad from the deli instead of the canned variety.
  • tip 2
    You can cook and drain the ground beef up to 8 hours in advance. Refrigerate until serving time, then reheat in the microwave just until warm and add the remaining ingredients.
  • tip 3
    Pick up some fresh sourdough bread at the bakery to slice and serve with this tasty salad.
