Christmas Bean Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by auntchelle

You know how you make something once and then you are making it for the rest of your life? Well that's how this gets it's name. I HAVE to make it every Christmas or my family revolts! Don't be put off by the seemingly long list of ingredients - it's mostly opening cans! Can be made up to 3 hours ahead however only add dressing at time of serving. (Australian measurements used.)

These looked lovely on our Christmas table. It was enjoyed by many and a terrific dish to have for our vegetarians. I used Recipe #201756 to dress it which was very nice. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
