My DIL's mother shared this recipe with me and of course, I have to post it here! We love these salads that have fresh from the garden tastes. Cook time is chill time.

Love it! The combination of beans and vegetables is fantastic and I loved the dressing. It should be noted that this is a sweet dressing, which I enjoyed, but next time I may reduce the amount of sugar. I omitted the parsley and celery because I didn't have any, and did use sweet pepper. Delicious!

We really enjoyed this salad! I did cut the sugar and I served avocado on the side-so good! I hope you don't mind but I passed it along to the ladies at work :) You got 3 more "5 star" reviews from them.

All things good wrapped in one very good recipe. I used the 2T.sugar in the dressing & didn't find it any too sweet at all, just right. Used 1 whole green bell pepper & just tossed it in with the rest of the stuff. This is a great recipe to take to work & have for that mid morning & afternoon snack we all need. Serve it up in little bowls as the dressing will run all over your plate if you don't.
