3 Bean Salad

Hey everyone I'm sorry for being away for so long but I have a request from my daughter Jennifer, in fact she has asked several times...for my Bean Salad recipe and I'm finally getting to it. It's easy and switched up from a box mix to just try to make it a little lighter. So here is my version. This is for you Jen...I'm so happy you enjoyed it!

3 BEAN SALAD
2 cans of green beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1/2 Cup chopped red onion
1/2 Cup chopped red bell pepper

1 packet of Good Seasoning Italian Salad Dressing
1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 Cup water
1/4 Cup Canola Oil
Sugar or artificial sweetener (if you want your dressing sweetened)

Drain and rinse the canned beans. Add your chopped vegetables and set aside. In a separate bowl add the seasoning mix and the remaining ingredients for the dressing. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar or artificial sweetener at a time, to sweeten the dressing if you would like. I sweeten my dressing to cut the vinegar sometimes. It's an individual thing...so give it a try. ENJOY!
