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!

Vegetable Salad

1 head of cauliflower

Mix together 3 Tbsp sugar (splenda), 2 Tbsp vinegar (red wine vinegar is good used also), and 1 cup mayonnaise.
Then mix up with chopped vegetables and let set 1 hour in ref. Then mix 1 cup grated cheddar cheese. Can eat as is or is good to top off a salad.

dash hot pepper sauce (tabasco) mix up in mixing bowl. Toss with vegetables and ref. till serving time. Drain before serving. 6 3/4 servings. Again good to eat as side or on salad.

8 cups fresh veggies-whatever you like
1/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup splenda
1/4 cup water

Whist together everything but the veggies. Toss dressing in w/veggies. Refrigerate for about 4 hours, tossing

Veggies keep in refrigerator for up to 3 days
