When I was young, my mom used to make 3-bean salad all the time during the summer - so refreshing! Does anyone else remember it? It had green beans, wax beans, and kidney beans, with onions in a great vinagrette (which unfortunately was loaded with sugar!). If anyone has a SB-friendly version of it, I would so appreciate you posting it!

Thanks!

This one is super simple and pretty tasty.

1 can drained kidney beans
1 can drained cut yellow wax beans
1 can drained cut green beans
2 hardboiled eggs peeled and chopped
1 medium onion sliced in rings
1 bottle Italian dressing
pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and let set 1-2 hours

The dressing on this one is outstanding. Nice sweet-sour flavor.

1 (8-ounce) can green beans, drained
1 (8-ounce) can red kidney beans, drained
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
