Italian Bean Salad

Italian food is on my mind. Sometimes more than others. This recipe for Italian bean salad was a requested favorite while we were catering. It’s hard for me to acknowledge, but we’re coming up on the 1st anniversary of our closure. I can’t believe it’s almost been a year. There have been so many changes. So many different things. Reconnecting with you my readers has been on my list of favorite changes!

This is a typical Italian salad. I pair it with red wine. If you’re looking for something different this Thanksgiving serve this as a side dish! Your guests will love it.
