  3. Slash the sodium (salt) up to 45 percent in all canned beans by draining and rinsing thoroughly.

Whisk rice vinegar, oil, sugar, salt and pepper in a separate small bowl until thoroughly blended. Pour dressing over bean-onion mixture and stir lightly to coat all ingredients. Enjoy immediately.
