      Very good. This one will go in my "keep" file. I did not have a full cup of red wine vinegar so I used some apple cider and balsamic and it was still great. I think it is the cooking and garlic that really made the dressing. Because it is what I had I used canned beans and there was enough dressing that I was able to use a mixture of 5 cans of beans. Thanks for the great recipe Mariajane.

      The BEST bean salad I've ever eaten- The garlic/sugar/vinegar ratio is perfect. This same recipe is in Cook's Country, too. Thanks Mariajane, for posting. Roxygirl
