Red White and Bean Salad

This is an old recipe that I had completely forgotten about. Our former next door neighbor (who now lives around the corner) reminded us about it tonight when we saw her walking her beatiful big furry dog, Charlie (I think he's a shepherd-collie mix - face and fur like a collie, body and legs like a german shepherd). We made it for a party at her house years ago (10 years ago, I think) and since then, she makes it for all of her parties, especially during the summer barbeque season. It is simple, healthy and very easy to make.

Red White and Bean Salad

3 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 med.\ium cucumber, peeled, seeded & chopped
1 16-oz can great northern beans, rinsed
1 15-oz can light red kidney beans, rinsed
2 Tablespoon dried parsley
2 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Combine and chill!
