Combining the Beans and Onion 

In a medium bowl mix together 15 ounces green beans, 15 ounces wax beans, 15 ounces kidney beans, and ½ red or white onion that has been sliced. You can use canned beans that have been rinsed and drained. If you want to use fresh beans you will want to boil the beans until they are tender then drain them. Fresh beans will give this salad a little more crunch.  You can use either method when making this salad.
