Yesterday I was at my sister-in-laws house prepping for a cook-out, and for the second week in a row she mentions that we should make a 3 bean salad. So…let’s do this! This salad could not be easier. It requires only the beans you would like to include, vinegar and sugar. Easy as can be! Stir, and let marinade for a few while you head outside and enjoy the last days of summer!Bean Salad from www.eatliveblog.com
