Use whatever type of cooked beans you like in this recipe. You'll need about 4 pounds total. I like to pick out beans that have different colors and shapes, to provide interest. You can use your favorites.

Great tasting salad if you do like sweet. I only used 3 cans of beans: red kidney, pinto and white northen. I cut the dressing down to 1/2 and only used 1 tsp sugar. I also added some diced jalapenos. Will make this one again since it's so tasty and easy! Made for Rookie Recipe Tag Game 2013.

This is really good but has a significantly sweet flavor. If you like a sweet bean salad this is for you. If you prefer a less sweet and more tangy salad, I would cut the sugar in half.

This was very tasty and a snap to make. We halved the recipe, using a can of chickpeas and a can of black beans. Very nice combination of flavours - we'll be making this one again! Thank you for posting your recipe!
