I'm not quite turning into my Mother, but I'm skipping a generation and turning into my Grandmother. Gads! I made 3 Bean Salad this weekend, and am enjoying a bowl right now for my lunch. I never in a MILLION years thought I would ever make this salad and actually enjoy eating it. But there is something about the vinegar/oil/sugar mixture with the crunch of green beans and onions that awakens my senses. After all the many years growing up spending the weekend with my Grandma, and all she ever had in her fridge to eat was 3 Bean Salad, I now like it. Who would have ever thought? I wish I would've gotten her recipe before she passed away, but thank goodness for allrecipes I was able to find a recipe and whip up this scrumptious salad. I tried to get my roommate (brother) to eat some, but I couldn't convince him. Apparently he is still stuck on the memory of Grandma always having this salad around, and always supplying it at bbq's. I was stuck on that for a while too. But, when you do Bountiful Baskets as frequent as I do, and you get a whole bunch of green beans - I think to myself, Self, what are you going to do with all these green beans? I'm going to make 3 Bean Salad just like Grandma did!
