This is my mother-in-law's three bean salad recipe...I'm not sure where she originally got it from but, it is my husbands favorite salad. It is a very simple, great tasting salad. The recipe calls for kidney beans but, you can use any kind of beans you like. We have used northern beans and my mother-in-law suggested using black beans.
