Pasta and Three Bean Salad Printable Recipe Card

If you don’t want to cheat and use the READ brand 3 bean salad like I did you can also use fresh green beans, yellow wax beans and kidney beans that you prepare.  You will also have to add a favorite sweet Italian dressing.  I totally recommend finding the READ brand and trying it … you will love it!!!  The ingredients included are: GREEN BEANS, WATER, WAX BEANS, KIDNEY BEANS, SUGAR, DISTILLED VINEGAR, DEHYDRATED ONIONS, RED BELL PEPPERS, SALT, SOYBEAN OIL, TURMERIC.  I am stocking up on mine so I can make this salad year-round!  Below is the recipe for this delicious meal or side dish.

Deadheading the Basil
Use Home Grown Basil

It is best to use a home grown basil like ‘Tower’ or ‘Pesto Party’ varieties because they are small leaf and you won’t have to chop them up in this salad.
