This salad is so easy to “fix” and it keeps well in the fridge. I make it and keep it in the refrigerator for my lunch. Would be great to take to work, too.
1 (16 ounce) bag frozen mixed vegetables of your choice, cooked (I used Kroger Recipe Beginnings Vegetable Soup Mix. Could use fresh veggies, too.)
1 1/2 cups macaroni, cooked or pasta of your choice
1/2 cup onion, chopped (could use green onions, too)
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1 (15.5 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Toss above ingredients in large salad bowl. Add dressing recipe below.
Sweet and Sour Salad Dressing
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (could use regular yellow mustard)
1 tablespoon butter or margarine.
Combine ingredients and heat on stove top until just comes to boil. Let cool. Pour over vegetable salad. Makes about 10 servings. Enjoy!
