THREE BEAN SALAD
1 lb green beans
1 lb yellow beans
1 15oz can red kidney beans, drained
1/2 c chopped green bell pepper
1/2 c sliced red onion
1/2 c cider vinegar
1/3 c vegetable oil
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper
If using fresh green/yellow beans, cook slightly. Combine beans, green pepper, and onion. Whisk together remaining ingredients, and pour over bean mixture. Toss salad well, and chill for at least 4 hours. Serve.
Another thing that I love about this salad is that you can use so many different kinds of beans, and the greater the variety, the more beautiful it looks. I usually use a mixture of canned or frozen green beans, but if you would like to use fresh, it just takes an extra couple of minutes of cooking. This is a great alternative to the typical holiday meals, and is always a crowd pleaser. Make sure to make enough to have with your leftovers the next day!
