Darlene,I have been making this salad so many years I can't count!! The only things I do differnt is I make sure I use light red kidney beans,use dill pickle& onion. I never have used celery,but will try it the next time I make.I got the recipe from my mom,& everytime I make it,I think of her Thanks for posting.
My mom used to make this when I was a kid and now I have finally found it again. Made exactly as written AND added some chopped onion and chopped green pepper. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!!
Tried your recipe to see if it was like the bean salad we get at a local restaurant. It came pretty close. It is easy to prepare. Thanks Darlene Summers. Bullwinkle.
