4-Bean Salad

No time to fuss around, just throwing a recipe up here.

1 lb each: cooked green beans
cooked wax beans
cooked kidney beans
cooked garbanzo beans
1/2 medium onion, diced fine
1/2 red bell pepper, diced fine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup light olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Mix together last 4 ingredients. Then mix everything together and allow to marinate overnight (or at least 2 hours- the longer the better).

Note: It has come to my attention that my recipe is confusing. Regarding the beans, I use canned beans simply because it's easiest. However, if you happen to have access to fresh green and wax beans, you can simply cut them into 1 inch pieces and cook in salted water until tender then allow to cool and drain. I'm sure you could probably do the same with frozen but I haven't tried that.

Hello from another former Canada dweller! Came across your blog this morning while searching for a recipe for puffed wheat cake/squares.

I've lived in the USA for almost 15 yrs and I don't know if I've ever made these during that time - if so it must have been like one time. Anyway I made them and they turned out hard as rock! I did some more research this morning and re-did them. Lots more cocoa, less corn syrup and didn't boil the mixture for 3 minutes like one recipe called for.

They are great!

I'll enjoy reading through your previous posts to see other familiar Canadian recipes :)
