Countdown to Thanksgiving - the salad: Green Bean Salad

Today's recipe is a very simple one, but one that has been in our family for many years.

The holidays have always meant family get-together and get-together always means potluck. Believe me, that is the only way--when you assemble all of the aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, and grandkids we are a BIG group!

My mother-inlaw always brought the green bean salad:

Grandma Eleanore's Green Bean Salad
1 can green beans
1 can wax beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 medium onion, cut into rings

Drain vegetables and mix. Make dressing and pour over vegetables. Allow to marinate overnight.

2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cooking oil
1 tsp. salt
pepper to taste
