Keep a few cans of tuna or chicken in the fridge, for in those times when you need a quick meal. They'll be great to either drain and toss on top of a green salad or a quickie dish of tuna or chicken salad. Also, other canned goods I keep in the fridge from time to time are: pork and beans, German style potato salad, pickled beats. Living here in the desert, anything cold is greatly appreciated, especially if it can shorten my time in the kitchen!

A favorite here is 3-Bean salad in cans.
Recipe for home made 3-bean salad, easy & much cheaper than buying it ready made. You can also make a chow-chow or mixed veggie salad w/ this 'dressing' using canned mixed veggies instead of just beans. All cans are 14-16ounce.
1 can cut green beans, one yellow, one kidney
3/4 cup white table sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup vegetable oil (liquid oil)
2/3 cup white vinegar
1 small onion, any kind
1/2 green or any color bell pepper
You can mix / match / change recipe to suit you.
Drain all veggies, gently mix all ingredients together, refrigerate 1 day for best flavor. The sugar will dissolve as it sits in the refrigerator.
