Recipe: Peggy's Green Bean Salad

I consider myself lucky because I pretty much hit the mother in law jackpot when I married DH.

She loves to cook and prepare meals, and she probably loves it more than I do!
This recipe is one of my favorite salads that she makes and I finally made it myself for the first time last week.



-1/4 cup oil
-1/3 cup vinegar
-1/2 cup sugar (I used sugar in the raw)

-1 can green beans, french style (15 oz)
-1 green bell pepper, chopped (optional)
-1 tsp salt
-1 can white corn, 15 oz
-1 small jar pimentos, diced
-1 onion, chopped
-1 can English peas
-optional: 1 can black beans, 15 oz


-Boil oil, vinegar, and sugar until sugar is no longer granulated
-Mix with remaining ingredients
-Chill in refrigerator for 2-3 hours or until chilled
-Serve chilled

*This is the recipe that I was given from a local cookbook. If it is the same or similar to someone else's on the internets, I apologize, and please let me know.
