Quick Three-Bean Salad

This traditional three-bean salad, submitted by Amy Short of Lesage, West Virginia, bursts with the flavor of savory. Honey gives a pleasant sweetness to the vinaigrette that coats the blend of green beans, kidney beans and lima beans. It's perfect for picnics.

    Used the base of the recipe. Didn't have savory, but added thyme, red onion, black pepper, garlic powder, and red cayenne pepper cuz I love heat. Oh, and cukes & tomatoes! The dressing was a great base.
