It's My Mama's Three Bean Salad Recipe

I miss my Mama and Daddy every day.  One of the ways I bring them
closer is to do things, and cook things from my childhood.  One of 
those dishes is Mama's Three Bean Salad.  She loved it, in fact, she
loved to marinate cooked veggies of all kinds.  While this particular
salad is old fashioned, and I would probably put a new twist on it,
I am sticking to her style today.  It could not be any easier!

1 can Wax Beans, drained
1 can Green Beans, drained
1 can Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 thinly sliced sweet onion
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
pinch of sugar
Salt to taste

Mama was not a big fan of pepper, so she rarely used it.
Toss all the ingredients together in a pyrex or stainless bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours.

I transferred the salad to one of Mama's crystal bowls.  Toss the
salad before serving, and plate on some pretty salad dishes.
I feel closer to Mama already!

What favorite salads do you remember from your childhood?

I have a new post up on my dollhouse miniatures blog today.
I have not posted there for ages, but for those of you who
love minis, you can visit it here.  Happy Friday everyone!

Big Texas Hugs,
