Grandma's Sweet and Tangy Bean Salad

Recipe by  

"I've never been a huge bean salad fan, due to the textures primarily. However, this bean salad my grandmother and mother passed along is great because it adds a good crunchiness with cucumbers, green peppers, onion, and celery!"

Hubby loved this, I didn't boil the dressing (did'nt see the boiling part of instructions)just put the dressing together in a jar and shook it up.

This recipe is wonderful! You can add and subtract probably any or all of the vegetables as long as you follow the dressing recipe exactly. I think the secret to its wonderful flavor is bringing it to a boil. Also the flavors really need to marry overnight. Thanks for sharing.

This recipe doesn't sound like it would be so delicious but it IS. My friend made it for a BBQ and I haven't been able to stop making it ever sense. Substitute Chickpeas for the wax beans. We used tortilla chips to dip.
