Marinated Vegetable Salad. This is a dish we have been making for a long time. We got the recipe from my mother-in-law. I love cold salads.
I recently wrote 5 Quick and Easy Salad Ideas that included a lot of my other salad recipes. They taste great and don’t take much effort at all. My kind of recipe if you haven’t noticed by now!
We used dried beans for the recipe and just soaked them all in one big jar overnight, and then boiled them in the morning for about 15-20 minutes until they became soft.
Then, we let them cool before putting this recipe together. Dried beans are far cheaper and taste much cleaner too. I never noticed that until I started eating them on a regular basis.
