This is a recipe my mother showed me and I often make it when I'm invited to a pot-luck.

Bean Salad


2 - 14oz cans cut green beans
2 14oz cans cut yellow (wax) beans
1 19oz can red kidney beans
1 19oz can 6-bean medley
1 16oz bottle Italian salad dressing


Open canned beans and drain (If you use a colander to drain beans, put the kidney and bean medley in first and then the clear liquid from the green and yellow beans helps rinse off the thick juice from the kidney beans),

Put drained beans into large bowl

Add salad dressing and mix gently so not to mash the beans

Cover and place in refrigerator over night

Mix again and then drain off excess liquid dressing.

Ready to serve.
