Dorothy Thomas Three Bean Salad

Family Friday Four in a row.  This week, a side dish.  This is an incredibly easy three bean salad.  The directions called for frozen beans, but I could not find frozen wax beans, so I used canned.

As written:

1 pkg frozen green beans
1 pkg frozen wax beans
1 can kidney beans (drained)

Cook the frozen beans, add to kidney beans. Add 1 thinly sliced onion, separated into rings.

Since I could not find frozen wax beans, I used 1 14.5 ounce cans of each type of bean, rinsed and drained. I also ommitted the onion entirely.

The recipe provided two dressings, I prepared using the following:

1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil)
1/2 cup vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp oregano

Mix together and pour over beans.  Refrigerate for 24 hours.

You can use any kind of beans.  I (D. Thomas), like lima beans or canned butter beans.

When I made this, I used 4 cans of beans- Green, waxed, lima and butter.
