Making this colorful salad a day ahead gives it time to marinate. We love its flavorful tangy-sweet dressing.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) cut wax beans, drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) cut green beans, drained
  • 3 celery ribs, sliced
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve with a slotted spoon.
