This recipe is a good twist if you are not in the mood for the same old 3 bean salad. I brought this to a potluck bbq and almost everyone went back for thirds of this dish until it was gone. Read More

I loved the preparation...pop open a few cans and mix it all up. However it's missing...something. I couldn't figure it out but playing around with spices might definitely improve this recipe Read More

Very versatile dish- I substitued cannellini beans because I did not have butter beans on hand and I also used marinated artichoke hearts instead. If you don't have the marinated artichokes on hand you could just add a small clove of garlic crushed to the dressing for added flavor. You could really play with the ingredients on this one to suit your tastes! Excellent flavor! Read More

This is an excellent quick choice! Made it for a picnic at my in-laws and it was a big hit. Didn't spice it up like I normally would have (little more salt-n-pepper and hotter mustard) but it turned out just perfect to serve to a variety of people. I also added mushrooms, and some wax beans. Overall, great! Read More

This turned out great. I used fresh string beans and omitted the salt. I also rinsed all the canned beans to reduce the salt. It was refreshing and very light Read More

Did not look all that appetizing I love the dressing but I couldn't fix the presentation. The Butter beans seemed to have made it mushy. would probably try wax beans next time. Read More

This recipe was great but we did make a few changes (mostly due to ingredients we had at home). We substituted wax beans for the butter beans omitted the mustard and also put in some garbanzo beans hominy feta cheese and roasted bell peppers. Absolutely fabulous! Read More
