Creamy Green Bean Salad

 Creamy Green Bean Salad
IN our early years of marriage, my husband asked me to make bean salad "like his mother's". I've tried many versions, but this is the one our whole family likes best. In the past, I'd can about 50 quarts of green beans every year, but now my husband suggests I can only enough to keep making this salad. -Lorraine Mix, Remer, Minnesota
