Three Bean Salad

1 Cup Mixed Beans
1 Cup Chopped Vegetables
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar (about 50/50 with Oil)
1-2 Slices Red Onion
1/4 Orange Pepper
1 Celery Stick
1/2-2 Clove Garlic
1 Pinch Oregano Powder
1 Pinch Basil Powder
1/4 Cup Sugar (optional)

Cook the beans, drain and put in a large bowl. Chop vegetables, mince garlic and mix with beans. Mix oil and vinegar with oregano and basil. The oil/vinegar should be about 50/50 but mix it to your preference. Add dressing to bowl, stir and marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Drain dressing and transfer salad to a smaller bowl. If you prefer a stronger flavour just keep the salad in the dressing till it's eaten.

I love cooking and I am always eager to try new spices in recipes. This bean salad sounds very good we like to eat that sort of salads. We have a vegetable garden and an orchard. Here, in winter ripen all sorts of citrus fruit, which are absolutely delicious.
