My local supermarket hasn’t carried Read’s canned three-bean salad in many years, but I recall that it was quite good. That’s an easy thing to make so I usually made my own but used the canned sometimes in colder months, when I didn’t want the larger amount one gets when using several cans of beans.
Recently, in Wegman’s, I spotted Read’s German potato salad in a 51oz can. Good for hot weather, when I am not about to heat my kitchen cooking pounds of potatoes. I figured I’d have to doctor it but to my delight, it’s fine as is. Tastes the same as what I’d buy at the deli counter. This will be a regular summer pantry item for me, as it provides a good side dish option at any time, without the need of going shopping when it’s too hot to want to venture out. I believe they had smaller cans too.
