If you like bean salad then you will LOVE this one! The flavors blend nicely and guests ask for seconds and thirds! I added a little more sugar to bring the sweet/sour more into balance. The longer it marinates in the refrigerator the better it is! Read More

i usually don't like bean salad but i followed this recipe exactly and it was great. i did let the marinade cool a bit before pouring it over so the beans wouldn't get mushy. i sliced my vidalia onion into rings so us non onion eaters could easily pick them out but they definately add to the marinade flavor. i love the peppers in this! it adds a nice crunch. i used 1/2 teaspoon salt.

This is so easy to make and so tasty! I add an extra can of wax beans and an extra can of green beans and leave out the lima beans. Black beans are also good in this salad. I also add a can of sliced carrots for color. It's a wonderful dish for picnics get-togethers or barbeques. Read More

Liked it a lot. Made a couple of changes: beans: 1 (13oz) can black beans 1 can garbanzo beans 1 can "6 Bean Blend" (39oz altogether) plus I used a little more of the dried herbs. Went Fantastic. 2nd batch I figured I'd use fresh herbs--disaster. I chopped them way too coarse and got 'wood' in my salad. I thought about trying to save it by draining the bean mixture and straining the dressing to return to salad but never got around to it. Will use dried for sure and maybe a little more sweet onion for zip. A keeper!:-) Read More
