  1. I haven't made 3 bean salad in years and this looks yummy. Also I can use Truvia and make it low in sugar :-)

  2. This is bringing tears to my aunt used to make this and I think this is very close to her recipe! Pinned it! Thanks, Elaine!

    I hope the fires are out near your home.....Just checking on you!
