Great for a cookout. Best if made the day before and refrigerated so the flavors combine. You can lighten up the recipe by substituting the sugar for 1 1/2 times it's amount of Splenda.

A absolutely cannot remember the last time I use canned green beans, but for this recipe I did, & followed the recipe right on down, to & including the lima beans, about which I'm also not terribly enthused! And, surprise of surprises, if this bean salad didn't turn out to be wonderful! Loved everything about it, not the least of which is the ease of preparation! Great combo of veggies here, & a recipe that's worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
