"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Cool and Refreshing Veggie side dish

I prepared this side dish one day and it was a hit, so I decided to share it. It is tangy and somewhat tart!

1 15-oz Can of sweet corn
1 15-oz can of dark Red kidney beans
1 16-oz can of Garbanzo beans
1 - 6 oz can of Black pitted olives
4 long green onions
2 Avocados
2 Tomatoes
2 Tbls Apple cider vinegar
2 Tbls Olive oil
1 Tbls Pickle juice
Drain and rinse all canned goods
Dice : onions, avocados, and tomatoes.
Place all of these ingredients in a bowl.

Mix in another small bowl:
Olive oil
Apple cider vinegar
Pickle juice
one squeezed lemon
and one squeezed orange
Season with salt and pepper to your preference. = This is your salad dressing!
Pour dressing over the salad and chill 1 hour before serving. (toss well before serving)
you may add 2 Tbls sugar if you prefer a sweet/sour taste

My friends and neighbors keep me well supplied with lemons and oranges, and I am so grateful!

 I squeezed 15 oranges

I freeze fruit cubes and use them for future recipes as needed.
I got 42 ice cubes from 15 oranges.
I use 3 cubes to = 1 orange.
You can use the salad dressing for a regular green salad, or for the veggie salad below.

Here is a picture of my favorite veggie salad. We like a vinegar twist to it; however, 2 tbls. of sugar can be added to the dressing if you want it to be a bit sweet and sour.
Hope you enjoy it!
