Three bean salad brings back memories of my childhood. And this salad is delicious, cool and refreshing with just the right amount of tang. It goes well with lunch or beside a lovely meat and potato dinner!
My Mom used to make three bean salad quite frequently when I was growing up. I hadn’t thought about it until recently, when I developed a decided taste for it. I would have loved to call her and ask for her recipe, or just to talk to her for awhile. Just like I’d love to have her catch me up on all the happenings in the little community where I grew up….But I can only hear her voice in my memories now.
So anyway, I looked through her many recipe cards, but didn’t find her recipe for three bean salad. After much thought, research, and tasting, I came up with my own version. Although it’s not exactly like Mom’s, I’m happy to say that the results of my three bean salad recipe got a thumbs up from the hubby, which I’m very happy about! And BONUS!!!
