great salad but there were no onions in the receipe although there were red onione in the photos confusing. I added the red onions anyway & it was great. Fetta would be a great substituet for goat cheese & I plan on trying it next time

What great flavor! I used only a 15 oz can of beans (all I had) and used garlic infused olive oil instead of garlic and oil separately. I didn't know how much oil to use, so I added 1 Tablespoon. Totally, forgot the parsley, but I will add it now. Loved it without;probably even moreso with. This will be my go-to snack when I'm starving but it isn't dinnertime yet. Thanks Mermaidmagic for a snack that won't kill my diet.

Great salad! Very fresh tasting, easy and healthy. I made this just as written, just adding some red onion and using parsley and cilantro. I used the goat cheese, and it was perfect, and I think feta or queso fresco would be great subs. Thanx for posting !
