A while back we had a birthday party in State College, PA for my mother-in-law. Although my sister-in-law Judy put out another fabulous spread, she asked some family members to bring one of their favorite dishes.
Cousin Vicki brought a bean salad recipe that was so good everyone had to have the recipe. I'm not sure where she found it but it was tasty so I wanted to share it with everyone. This is a perfect time of year to serve a bean salad as a side at any barbecue.
Lots of ingredients but putting it together couldn't be easier and by all means experiment by substituting fresh beans and whatever ingredients you have on hand.
