My mother just loves Three Bean Salad and always had a coupla cans of the stuff in her kitchen cupboard as I was growing up.
We mostly would eat it in the Summer, chilled, as a side dish to pretty much anything my Dad grilled.
Pro tip: try this Three Bean Salad with Fried Chicken.
Not so long ago, Mom was saying that she could no longer find her Three Bean Salad in the Mega-Mart. So being the good daughter that I am, I did a search on the WWW and found this recipe:
The first time I made this, I did a half batch and it was gone in nothing flat!
So today I made a second round, this time a full recipe and got 7 pints.
This time I switch it up a bit and rather than adding Green Bell Peppers I sliced up some Sweet Mini Bell Peppers, YUM!
Also, I used canned Beans, but fresh Green Beans. Oh and I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil, `cuz that’s what I keep in my pantry.
Total time from start to done was about 3 hours.
You want to give yourself ample time when home canning anything, don’t try to rush it.
Remember, a recipe is simply someone else’s idea, take it and make it your own.
