Exclamation Recipe of the Day: Oil-Free Three-Bean Salad

I make this for lunch very often. It's yummy, and lasts a long time.

Oil-Free Three-Bean Salad

Serving Size : 6

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons fat-free chicken broth
2 tablespoons white grape juice (I usually omit this and just add a bit more water and Splenda)
2 tablespoons Splenda
1 teaspoon celery seeds (never used these)
1 clove garlic -- minced
SALAD
8 ounces canned cut wax beans -- drained
8 ounces canned cut green beans -- drained
8 ounces canned red kidney beans -- drained (I use the whole can of all beans - that way it doesn't waste)
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers

Dressing: In a small bowl, stir together the vinegar, broth, juice, Splenda, celery seeds and garlic.

Salad: In a large bowl, combine the wax beans, green beans, kidney beans, onions and peppers.

Add the dressing.

Gently stir till combined.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 4-24 hours to blend the flavors, stirring often.

Description:
"This salad improves with age, has a tangy-sweet dressing"

This sounds like something that would be good for a work potluck! I think I'll save it to make next time we have one. YUMMMM!
