Hubby is the bean salad expert and he thought the dressing wasn't quite what he expected. I usually use a 3 : 1 ratio of oil to vinegar.
It was good, but the sauce wasn't as vinegary as I like. Great combination of vegetables though!
I think this salad is excellent. It's simple to prepare. I prefer making my own salads at home instead of purchasing the pre-made ones at the grocery deli counter. Thanks for sharing this recip...
Fantastic recipe! Just what I was looking for! I used chickpeas instead of kidney beans because I was out of them and it tasted great. The chickpeas really absorbed the flavour of the dressing.
Our traditional recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar and 3/4 cup water along with the other ingredients.
So easy and yummy! Reminds me of my grandma's bean salad (her's was a little sweeter). Thank you, ccormia (and your mother-in-law).
