This was my grandma's recipe for bean salad-- one of my favorites, especially in the summer time.

"If you're looking for a classic three bean salad recipe this is it. I used steamed frozen green and yellow beans for a little more flavor and a little less sodium. However, the dressing is spot-on! "

Servings  

Preparation

1. Combine all non-bean ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk to combine until sugar is dissolved.

2. Pour over beans in a large tupperware container with a tight seal.

3. Refrigerate at least 2 days to allow beans to take up the flavor. Rotate the container upside down if possible to increase marination efficiency.

Enjoy!

I made this for a 4th of July picnic. It was awesome. Don't change a thing and make it 2 days ahead for the best taste.
