Salaam alaikum.

One of our family favorites:

Bean Salad


1 can mixed beans
Olive oil (about 1/3 cup)
Balsamic vinegar (same as oil)
1-2 slices red onion
1/4 orange pepper
1 celery stick
1/2-1 clove garlic
Oregano-1 pinch
1/4 cup sugar(optional)

Drain can of beans and put in 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 until it's eaten.
