1-1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Salad:
2 cups cannellini beans, home-cooked or canned, drained
2 cups red beans, home-cooked or canned, drained
1 cup new potatoes, boiled until tender and chopped
2-1/4 cups cups green beans, chopped
1 cup celery, diced

To make the vinaigrette, combine the water and cornstarch in a small saucepan, stirring with a whisk until the cornstarch dissolves.

Toss the salad ingredients in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed. Add dressing, stir to coat vegetables and chill. Makes 8 servings.
