      This is my "go-to" recipe whenever I crave bean salad!....What I have done so that it's easy to remember,I use 1/2 a cup of each the oil,vinegar and sugar and 1 teaspoon each of the salt,pepper,mustard and celery seed....I omit the green pepper and if I happen to have lima beans on hand,I'll add them otherwise I omit them....Today I've decided to omit the onion as well;However it's all good!....A good basic recipe....Thanks for posting!

      A great salad, it disappeared very quickly :-) Thanks for posting. Following other reviews used less than a quarter cup of sugar, also used only 1/4 cup of oil and that worked well for us.

      A wonderful recipe, just like my grandmother made. But watch the sugar! 3/4 C is very very sweet...1/3 to 1/2 C works for my family. Using fresh green and wax beans cooked to just crisp puts a lot of summer into it. No leftovers with this salad.
