I found this recipe as a copycat to a national chicken franchise's recipe. Even people who don't like beans will LOVE them in this recipe. I don't always use green peppers because some family members refuse to eat them. Recipe is great with or without them. The salad actually starts to taste better the longer it sits in the dressing.

I made this for two ladies who I catered for and they absolutely loved it. I followed the recipe exactly. It took about 5 minutes to make. I think it would be perfect for a summer bbq or potluck. I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for posting!

I made this for our church dinner tomorrow. It was easy to put together and already taste great! I use 1/2 splenda and 1/2 sugar, doubled it all but use slightly less with the sugar. For my first time making 3 bean salad it came out perfect. Thank you!
