Boil together 1 cup vinegar,however much stevia you need to sweeten it to your taste,1/4 cup olive oil (or less) and some cracked black pepper. Let this cool and drain & rinse 1 can kidney beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can white bean,1 can corn. While these are draining,chop 2 bell peppers (any color)a couple stalks celery, a couple of carrots and an onion (purple looks best) Mix these all together and refridgerate. You can alter any ingredients to you rown taste, but this approx. how I make it. If you want, you can add a tomato just before serving or add canned tomatoes even rotel. This keeps very well (esp if you omit tomato) and can be eaten as a side dish, a salad or even main dish.

I make a three bean salad but I usually use kidney beans and garbanzo beans from cans, the green beans I use are usually the frozen kind. Drain and rinse all beans well. In a bowl, combine equal amounts of white vinegar and water. Add about a tablespoon of sugar, some pepper. In this brine I put thinly sliced onions and let them sit for a while. Then I top it with the beans and mix. Let stand for several hours. This is good for days in refrigerator.
