Three Bean Salad

This is a wonderful recipe my mother gave me back in 1983. It's great for picnics since you don't need to be as careful with refrigeration (as with potato salad). It has a nice sweet and sour flavor that works well with BBQ too. Give it a try!

1 can cut green beans, drained
1 can wax beans, drained
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 cup diced sweet, white onion
3 or 4 Tablespoons diced green pepper

½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar

Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl.

Combine dressing ingredients in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, and boil for two minutes. Pour over salad, and gently mix together.

Cover, and chill overnight in refrigerator.
