Picnic Salad

This salad is simple to make, tastes great and stays good in the refrigerator for up to five days (although it probably won’t last that long!). It’s perfect for potlucks, picnics and backyard BBQs. It is a great accompaniment to any summer meal you can think of! Please make sure you buy French-style green beans and shoe peg corn- they just taste better!

1/2 c. white wine vinegar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. canola oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1 can French-style green beans, drained
1 can tiny sweet peas, drained
1 can shoe-peg corn, drained
1 whole red bell pepper, diced
3 celery stalks, diced

Combine all dressing ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and let cool for about 45 minutes. Once completely cool, pour over all salad ingredients; toss to coat. Chill at least four hours before serving. Use a slotted spoon when serving so the dressing doesn't pool...Easy-peasy, that’s it!!
