Family Recipe Friday: Four Bean Salad

Published in the July 18, 1980 Nowata (OK) Daily Star

This type of bean salad was a staple at summer covered dish suppers during my childhood.  This particular recipe was published in the Nowata Daily Star's annual recipe edition, when local cooks had their best recipes published.

Four Bean Salad

1 cup canned cut green beans, drained
1 cup canned cut yellow wax beans, drained
1 cup canned kidney beans, drained
1 cup canned garbonzo beans (chickpeas), drained
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion

Combine the beans in a large bowl.  In a medium saucepan, mix together the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.  Heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved; pour over the beans and stir to coat.  Add onions, mix lightly but thoroughly.  Refrigerate overnight.  Serves 10 - 12
