Three Bean Salad

This salad is super easy and delicious. I made it up the other weekend before going to my parents for family night. I don’t know if it is the traditional three bean salad because I’ve never looked up the recipe, but J said it reminded him of it. I am horrible at measuring things, so the dressing is just an estimate,

    • Yes, I just left them raw. You could blanch them to bring out the color and soften them a bit. You could cook them too, if you prefer the soft salad. I like things crunchy, so I decided to leave them raw.
