Three Bean Salad

The salad summer series continues! And by “series” I mean, here’s one more since the Italian Pasta Salad. When it’s 90 degrees and humid outside, there’s no need for a big bowl of hot chili. I just want a salad to cool things down satisfy my hunger without feeling overheated. Make this super easy salad for dinner, side dish or that upcoming picnic.

  1. What a great salad and so much better than the traditional ones I saw growing up.

  2. This looks so good! Especially nice to take to a party because it’s not as bad to leave sitting out for more than an hour or two!
