Three Bean Salad With Celery

"This salad recipe is great for summer picnics. It's delicious, quick, and easy to make. You can substitute the variety of beans in this recipe with other types and still have a great bean salad. I sometimes use cannellini beans in place of the green beans and it still tastes great!"

This is almost the same three bean salad my mom used to make except she used wax beans, green beans and kidney beans. Also she added 1/4 cup of Worcestershire Sauce. Even as a kid, I loved tha...

The celery is a good addition to Three Bean Salad. Hubby is our Bean Salad expert around here and he said these were too oily for him & needed more sugar and vinegar.

Made & let sit as recommended, but this would've been a 5 if I'd let sit over night. I had a little leftover & having it the next day was so much better with the flavor mixing. Next time I'll m...

Loved this recipe! Substituted kidney beans for black beans though. Taste is great and everyone loved it! Perfect for summer.

Jan. 20, 2014. We all love this recipe in my house! Except I used a smaller amount of onion FINELY chopped. I have also used red onion. I have since mixed & matched up a variety of beans. -Rikita

Thought this was absolutely wonderful. Cut down on the onion though and diced them really really small, no one in my house likes raw onions. Made this recipe for easter and it was a big hit with...

I really liked this. Next time I will reduce the oil and increase the vinegar just slightly. I used green beans, garbanzo. light and dark kidney and cannellini for a large double batch.
