Marinated 3-Bean Salad

 This is a great picnic salad - make it the night before so the flavors can blend.
 Be sure to mix the salad with still-warm green beans and wax beans so they'll
absorb the flavors of the dressing better.

Makes 4 servings

2 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp apple juice
2 tsp grated peeled gingerroot
1 cup cut green beans (2" lengths), steamed until tender-crisp
1 cup cut wax beans (2" lengths), steamed until tender-crisp
1/2 cup canned red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 onion, minced
1/4 red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
2 tbsp chopped basil

In a large bowl, mix the vinegar, apple juice and gingerroot.  
Add the green beans, wax beans, kidney beans, onion, bell pepper
and basil; toss to coat.  Refrigerate,covered, until chilled, at least 3 hours.
