This has always been a big hit for dinner get-togethers. I usually make this for Easter. My family loves it. I usually add a little extra vinegar.

Wow, this was really great! I didn't chill overnight, but long enough. I used a half a can of the kidney beans. This was so good homemade! Will make again. Simple and delicious, what more can you ask for in a dish?

WOW PanNan what a wonderful dinner you brought into my table last night. My whole family loved it, and they told me to thank you for a wonderful dinner and that they demand that I make it again very soon. Now for the Bean Salad, I added red onion instead of white, some green onions, and a can of chick peas. YUM! I refrigerated it for 4 hours instead of over night (made the same day for dinner) and it was nice and chilled. Not overly sweet at all. I have left overs and I can't wait to have with tonight''s dinner. With this bean salad I also made your "Perfect Southern Fried Chicken" and your "Golden Garlic Mashed Potatoes" can everyone say COMFORT FOOD? Loved it, thank you so much :) Made for Fall PAC 09

This is a classic three bean salad much like the one I remember from childhood. Very simple, but very good. The flavors were better the next day. Nicely sweet & tart at the same time. Other than using regular canned green beans instead of french cut and using half red onion & half yeIlow onion I made no changes. This would be a terrific addition to a potluck table. The colors are pretty and everybody likes it. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for fall 08 Pick A Chef.

For years I have used a sugar substitute instead of the sugar and the results are great......except for this, my recipe is exactly the same as yours....a fellow Canadian
