Marinated beans that pack a punch! Refrigerate this salad overnight and see if it gets more tasty. You can vary the recipe by substituting black beans for the kidney beans, if you like.

Did a salad luncheon for 50 people. I made 6 different salads. This one was the winner. I got many requests for the recipe. The overnight marinade does the trick. Read More

This wasn't bad but it just seemed to be missing something. Aside from using black beans and fresh basil I followed the recipe exactly and I let it marinate overnight (I also roasted my own red peppers). I'm not sure the parsley and basil are the best herbs for this dish--for me it needs something deeper like thyme or maybe savory. Plus I think it could use more veggies but that's just personal preference. Read More

I doubled the dressing and toned it down with a little water. I used cider vinegar because I didn't have balsamic. I served the salad over rice and soy "ground beef" as a cold dinner. Everyone liked it including the kids. Read More

Made as directed and there is a little too much marinade but it does have a great flavor. We will play with this one. Read More

Though not that quick as it tastes better when it's left to sit overnight it is a nice variation from the typical 3-bean salad recipes. Read More

I followed this recipe to a "T" and it it's really good. I'll be having it as side with my cold cut sandwiches for lunch this week. I liked that there was no oil and the only fat comes from the beans. The roasted red peppers really give it something special. Next time I will add more tomatoes and maybe also a can of garbanzo beans and increase the dressing. Great recipe and very versatile. I could see many different types of bean or peppers in it and it would still be delish. Thanks Kathy. Read More
