3 Bean Salad-The 1960's Original Recipe

Gena S


This was a big hit when I was growing up. I think KFC started having such a salad, so all my mom's friends went in search of a recipe for it. So this was served at every fish fry, or get together. I remember my mom saying it was better to fix 1 or 2 days ahead because the flavors blend more and more....getting better and better.
