Bean Bowl Salad

This is another of my great grandmother's recipes that I have made repeatedly over the years. It is great this time of year for pot-luck dinners, BBQs, and summertime meals. It must be made ahead so is ready when you are. I can't get enough of this and use the leftovers to top off big chef salads or dinner salads.

Mix and marinate 24 hours in refrigerator:

1 can green beans, drained
1 can wax beans, drained
1 can rinsed kidney beans
1 onion, chopped fine
2 Tablespoons parseley
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup salad oil
3/4 cup vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Stir a few times while marinating. To serve, drain, and pour beans into a lettuce lined bowl. Add pickle relish on top (optional).
