This is an easy to prepare recipe, and is yummy! I used 2 cans of green beans, 1 can of wax beans, and 1 can of dark red kidney beans. I substituted apple cider vinegar because that is what I had on hand.

As Three or Four Bean salads go, this is terrific! I have tried a lot of them and have an extensive library of those that didn't work. This is the best I've found. If you are in a hurry, try "Newman's Own Balsamic Vinegarette" as a shortcut to the the dressing recipe. It is tasty and doesn't require any time. In any event, give this recipe a try!

A co-worker gave me her recipe and yours is almost exact so placing rating here for future use. Also added 1 green pepper and 2-3 stalks celery sliced thinly. Sugar was reduced to less than 1/2 cup, used white regular vinegar with a splash of red wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp dill weed and 2 tsp chopped parsley. Her recipe called for 1/4 cup oil. I will definitely try your list of ingredients and we all enjoyed a bean salad.

The perfect balance of tart and sweet. I used an extra can of green beans since I didn't have wax beans, and I used olive oil. The red onion and red vinegar are key for flavor, but I'm going to see if I can get away with using a little less sugar next time, just to be healthier (tastewise, I wouldn't change a thing!).

Didn't know bean salad was SO easy to make, and this recipe tastes far better than any store bought. From one bean lover to another, thanks!

This was easy to make, but something about it just struck me wrong. I did not like this bean salad at all.
