Summer time is salad time....

Summer time always seems to call for salads, and today's recipe is simple to put together.  The recipe comes from the Konnarock Cooking book which I bought last summer during a visit to the former Konnarock Lutheran Training School.  Unfortunately, I am unable to locate the picture at this point, though I know I have it somewhere.:-) 

1 (1 lb.) can shoe-peg corn, drained
1 (1 lb.) can french cut green beans, drained
1 (1 lb.) can small peas, drained
1 cup chopped celery
1 green pepper, chopped
green onions, tops and all (as many as you like)
3/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1/2 tsp. salt and pepper
- Mix all vegetables together.  Mix dressing ingredients together in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Pour over vegetables.  Let stand overnight.

We really like this!  It is a perfect accompaniment for a cookout!

GARDEN UPDATE:  The church community garden has donated over 60 pounds of produce to local food banks and agencies.  The Husband and I have donated 18 pounds of green beans to this effort.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate  your comments.

  6. Wow, 18 pounds of fresh green beans can feed a lot of people. m..., love green beans... That is wonderful. The more you pick the more you get.

    The salad sounds great except I would have to cut down on sugar. It would still taste good to me with less sugar.
