Three Bean Salad With Celery

Recipe by  

"This salad recipe is great for summer picnics. It's delicious, quick, and easy to make. You can substitute the variety of beans in this recipe with other types and still have a great bean salad. I sometimes use cannellini beans in place of the green beans and it still tastes great!"

I love this is the summer or for a pot luck. I do vary it a bit. I add yellow wax beans and use a red onion and green pepper.

The celery is a good addition to Three Bean Salad. Hubby is our Bean Salad expert around here and he said these were too oily for him & needed more sugar and vinegar.

This is almost the same three bean salad my mom used to make except she used wax beans, green beans and kidney beans. Also she added 1/4 cup of Worcestershire Sauce. Even as a kid, I loved that bean salad.., I think it was the dressing that made it so good. Now I make it myself... hmm, must be missing something because it never tastes as good as Mom's. Id give this recipe five stars but since its missing the Worcestershire sauce, it gets four.

Made & let sit as recommended, but this would've been a 5 if I'd let sit over night. I had a little leftover & having it the next day was so much better with the flavor mixing. Next time I'll make a day ahead of when I want it. Also, we don't care for garbanzo beans so used yellow wax beans instead.

Jan. 20, 2014. We all love this recipe in my house! Except I used a smaller amount of onion FINELY chopped. I have also used red onion. I have since mixed & matched up a variety of beans. -Rikita

Thought this was absolutely wonderful. Cut down on the onion though and diced them really really small, no one in my house likes raw onions. Made this recipe for easter and it was a big hit with the baked ham!

I doubled the sauce and added cucumber and carrots. Everyone loves it. Thanks
