      This bean salad was awesome! I loved it! I used 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar (I misread the recipe) and it was great. For the beans I had a smaller can of 4 bean mix and one of red kidney beans so I mixed the two of those. The onion, parsley and garlic all got whizzed together in the food processor in no time flat so it was fast. I ate nearly the whole lot myself as I'm the main bean eater around here. This is a great healthy side dish and makes a great change to the often unhealthy BBQ choices. Thanks Jan, I'll make this often!

      Outstanding! Spinner has wowed us with this one before, but this time I made it myself. No fresh parsley, so used basil instead with a yummy result. I also think this dish could be dressed differently for a variation on flavours; next time I will try fresh lemon juice & oregano for a greek twist, thanks Jan!
