"Ruth Beitelspacher of Aberdeen, South Dakota notes, 'I recently made this salad to serve at a turkey barbecue. It was just as big a hit as it was for our son's confirmation dinner some 40 years ago.' Her trim treatment of the timeless sweet-and-sour beans doesn't cut down on flavor one bit."
In a bowl, combine the green beans, kidney beans, onion, pickle relish and green pepper. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar and sugar; mix well. Pour over bean mixture; toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve with a slotted spoon.
