This is one that my mom really likes. I'm honestly not real big on it because I don't care much for beans, unless they are baked or green! :) However, I do know many people do like this recipe and I hope you will, too.

This is my mother's recipe; she got it from one of her friends about 1950. Does that qualify as "old-fashioned"?

1 can kidney beans (rinsed and drained well)

1 can garbonza beans (rinsed and drained well)

1 can green beans (drained well)

1 can yellow/wax beans (drained well)

1 red or yellow pepper, seeded and sliced

Few thin slices of onion

Cover with:

1/2 cup vinegar

1/2 cup oil

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (more or less to taste)

Pepper to taste

Mix and allow salad to marinate overnight in refrigerator. (Any combination of beans is good; depends on what you like.)

Here is the one I use all the time. got it from "Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers" cook book.

1 can green beans, drained

1 can dark red kidney beans, drain and rinse

1 can yellow wax beans, drained

1 onion cut in rings, and halved

1/4 tsp whole celery seed

Toss with dressing. Marinate several hours.

Dressing:

1/2 cup vinegar

1/2 cup veg oil *(I use half water)

3/4 cup sugar

bring to boil and pour over beans.

*NOTE: I find that cutting the oil in half does not effect the taste of salad, but saves on oil and calories.

You can purchase 3-bean salad at the grocery store, much easier and it is delicious.

I am looking for a 3 Bean Italian salad, I had it while in the hospital and it tasted fantastic. I know hospital food usually doesn't taste good, but this was! I know it had white beans (navy or great northern) and pimentos and a great dressing, the rest I don't remember. Anyone have a real good one?

TIA

I've bought a bean salad similar to what you describe at the Sam's Club in Springfield MO. It might be the one you are looking for. It comes in a large jar (almost a gallon) but will keep a long time in the refrigerator.

I have a large jar of bean salad which was bought at Costco. I'm not practically fond of it (my husband bought it), but if anyone has any ideas on how to dress it up, please share. Thank you.
