Summer Bean Salad

This is a great bean salad. Perfect for a barbecue. It keeps well in the fridge. I love it! It tastes fresh and light. Ingredients:
1 medium green bell pepper
1 medium red bell pepper
1 cup cubed, browned ham
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 cups chopped onion
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 15-oz. cans white kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 15-oz cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
4 TBSP. yellow mustard
4 TBSP. cider vinegar
4 TBSP. pure maple syrup
2 TBSP. worcestershire sauce
crushed red pepper, optional
fresh oregano leaves, optional

Brown the ham in the 2 TBSP. vegetable oil. Add garlic and onion and saute until tender. Rinse the beans and chop the peppers and mix all together in a bowl. Add mustard, cider vinegar, maple syrup and worcestershire sauce. Make the day before.
