Bean Salad

Well another salad here.... I love bean salad! It is easy to make and you can adjust it to fit. Normally I make it very simple and plain 3 beans, vinegar, sugar, oil and salt and pepper. Today I felt like changing that up just a little.

1 can green beans
1 can wax beans
1 can chick peas
1 can dark red kidney beans
1/2 small onion sliced very thin
1/2 small green pepper, chopped
1 jar pimento
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery seed

In a small bowl whisk sugar, vinegar, oil, garlic, salt, pepper and celery seed together

Drain all beans, chick peas and pimento. In a large bowl mix the beans, onion, green pepper and pimento together. Pour liquid over the salad and toss to coat. Chill for at least an hour and toss before serving.
