Baked Bean Salad

A bowl full of beans is not a salad to me. I have seen many recipes for kidney bean salads and even green pea salads but never before have I seen canned pork and beans in a salad recipe. The cookbook I found it in is Pillsbury's Money Saving Meals. I know canned pork and beans are inexpensive but putting them in a bowl with a few other things and calling it a salad is too frugal for me.

Baked Bean Salad

2 cups (1-lb. can) pork and beans, chilled
1/4 cup chopped or sliced celery
1/4 cup chopped onion or sliced green onion or 1 tablespoon instant minced onion
1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
1 to 2 teaspoons prepared mustard or 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup cubed American or Cheddar cheese

In medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except cheese; blend just until well combined. Stir in cheese. Serve from bowl or on lettuce leaves, if desired.
