Most versions aren't worth a hill of beans. Ours is.
Why This Recipe Works
Using crisp, fresh green and yellow beans for our Three-Bean Salad considerably brightened this salad. We stuck with canned kidney beans to avoid the need to soak and simmer dried beans for hours. Raw onion and garlic were a bit harsh for this recipe. Instead, we tossed them into the saucepan as we heated the dressing to dissolve the sugar. The heat tamed the garlic, and the vinegar pickled the onions.
