The Best Three Bean Summer Salad | #Pyrex100

This post is part of the #Pyrex100 campaign, sponsored by Pyrex®, a Wold Kitchen brand.  Thanks for reading! 

In many ways, food is the connective tissue to our family and cultures.  Tastes and scents have the ability to transport us back to specific times in our lives – carrying ties to the people and places ingrained in memories.  With summer almost upon us, I’ve been craving a much lighter fare.  Specifically the delicious summer salads concocted in my mother’s kitchen.  Her amazing three bean summer salad recipes were my absolute favorite.  She always made more than enough to share with neighbors – and feed the crew of fellow lifeguards during my teenage summers spent working at a pool.

Like my own kids, I loved helping my mom in the kitchen.  Special occasions were marked by making delicious homemade meals and treats. I naturally thought of her when invited to join in celebrating Pyrex®, a World Kitchen brand’s 100th anniversary. It’s amazing how the vintage Pyrex pieces from my childhood memories remain steadfast household staples today.

Along with the kiddos (a.k.a. expert bean rinsers) we made one of my mom’s delicious three bean salad recipes with my favorite new limited-edition products from the Pyrex 100 “Centennial” and “Vintage Future” 100th Anniversary collections.
