This is from an Italian Women born in 1911 who was my friends Grandmother and all her recipes where written in Italian so I could not get any of her recipes, but this one.
I have been eating this for 30 years, I have know Idea how long she had been making it. But this is a Beautiful Looking Salad and so Simple to make. Please make it just like I wrote. The Smashed garlic is important and gives it a wonder flavor of bits of fresh garlic. I leave a little bit of the Kidney Bean Juice in mine because I am older now and don't use as much Vinegar or Olive Oil in my diet as I used to 30 yrs ago

How to Make Geneve's Italian Bean Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Add all the ingredients into a medium size bowl except the Red Wine Vinegar and Olive Oil.
  2. This is how I measure how much Red Wine Vinegar and Olive Oil to Use. I imagine that they have a spout on the bottle, like at bar for pouring drinks, and I do it like a Bar Tender. I Turn the Red Wine Vinegar Bottle Over to pour and give it a Three Count like 1-2-3. Then, I do the same with the Olive Oil 1-2-3. The stream is the same as if pouring a drink of alcohol with a spout.
  3. Then take a medium size spoon a stir the ingredients folding the beans so you don't injure them with the spoon.
  4. Serve Right Away or Refrigerate for 1 hour for Full Flavor.
    Enjoy Geneve's delicious salad!
    This is a beautiful salad.
