First, drain and rinse all of the beans. Then, in a large bowl mix the beans with chopped celery and diced red onion. In a different bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar and olive oil. Season the mixture generously with salt and pepper, to taste. Pour the dressing over the beans and toss. The salad is best if you chill the beans in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to allow the beans to soak up the great flavor of the dressing. Before serving, garnish with a sprig of rosemary, if desired.

Finally, ENJOY!
