Cold Bean Salad

This recipe comes from my friend, Genevieve Freer. She’s a sweet older lady who attended the church I went to when I lived in Dansville, Michigan. It’s the best “three bean salad” I’ve ever tasted!

Cold Bean Salad


  • 1/2 C oil – I used olive oil because I love the taste of it, but vegetable oil is acceptable
  • 1/2 C white vinegar
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 01 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. celery seed
  • 01 can green beans
  • 01 can wax beans
  • 01 can garbanzo beans
  • 01 can carrots
  • 01 small onion, diced
  • 01 celery stalk, diced

Cold Bean Salad Marinade


Simmer first six ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
Let cool.
Drain and combine vegetables.
Pour marinade over bean mixture.
Cover and refrigerate over night.
