  3. Marinate for at least 2 hours preferable in fridge or also good at room temperature.

  5. Notes:
  6. I use "low sodium" vegetables when possible. Cut out spices & use plain tomatoes if you want a more mild flavored Bean Salad.
  7. Variations: Make into complete meals.
  8. Taco Salad: add 26 ounces (2, 13 oz cans) chicken breast, 1 TB cumin, 1 ts black pepper, put on tortilla chips.
  9. Baked Potato Bar: use as a topping.
  10. Casserole Style: use the drained vegetable juices to cook long grain white rice in & serve bean salad on top with a cheese sauce.
