This is a nice anytime salad. It is easy to prepare the day before a picnic.

Great tangy sauce that goes over these beans and veggies!
My step-mother really likes this salad! Great if you like different varieties of beans.
My mother has always loved bean salad. Not one of my personal faves, but definitely one of hers.
Drain all the beans well and mix together. Then stir in the onion, celery and pepper. Stir in dressing. Let stand several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to blend.
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.
Drain all canned ingredients. Add part of vegetable liquid to salad dressing. Let stand overnight.

I am just looking for a good old fashioned recipe for a three bean salad.
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)
1/2 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.
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.
My Mom use to make this back in the 1950's.
Three Bean Salad

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?
