Hey wake up world, the perfect recipe may just have arrived!!! Okay, I admit I am a bean lover but I have not been able to get enough of this since I made it. Obviously this is a summer dish but it is very light and has a slight sweetness that is refreshing on hot days. This is not to be missed!

Oh my gosh! Wow! These are the kind of things I uttered, over and over as I was eating a bowl of this wonderfully simple dish! Who would have ever thought that so few ingredients could taste so spectacular?!?! :) I couldn't get enough, and can't wait to make it again! The marinade is sweet and tart, the beans are creamy, and the pepper adds a great crunch. I kept trying to think of what else I might add to it, and I couldn't think of a darn thing! Thanks!!

This is a good salad, the dressing has a nice amount of sweet/tart to it. I decided to add some chopped onion to this to give a little extra flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
