Simple Corn & Bean Salad

This simple salad is great to make ahead and have on hand in your fridge as a side to most any dinner.  Add your favorite beans - anything goes!  You can reduce the amount of sugar, but keep the ratio of oil to vinegar the same.


1 can cut green beans, drained
1 can red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
1 can white shoe peg corn, drained
1 small red onion, sliced
1/4 cup sugar  
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In large bowl, mix sugar with vinegar & oil until dissolved.  Add beans, corn, onion and pepper.  Mix until well coated.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.
