One of the best vegetables to freeze, as far as quality when it comes out of the freezer, is beans and I love Blanching & Freezing Beans. It doesn’t matter what kind: green beans, snap beans, or wax beans. It’s also super simple to grow beans, but that’s a whole ‘nuther thing, so no worries if you don’t grow your own. You can easily use beans from the farmer’s market or the grocery store or wherever you normally get your fresh green (or other) beans from.
I grew up on Old Fashioned Three Bean Salad and if you’re from the Midwest, I bet you did, too! There’s just nothing like fresh garden beans soaking up all the sweet, tangy marinade!
It’s a perfect summer salad for a potluck or to have on hand to fill out dinners or lunches. On a hot day, Old Fashioned Three Bean Salad is so cool and refreshing!
