I love this recipe!! I used fresh green beans instead of a can and it tasted wonderfully! I will be using this recipe again!

wow! This was really, really, really overwhelmingly sweet. And fairly bland. After letting it sit for a few hours I dumped out the extra liquid in the bowl and added in about 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and then added some seasoning salt and fresh parsley. That helped immensely...

I was a bit skeptical of this recipe, but it was actually really, really good. It tastes better on the second day so I highly recommend making it in advance. I couldn't find wax beans, omitted the green pepper and the scallions. I added some finely chopped red onion and let it marinate overnight. After marinating for a full day, I put over some argula and it acted as a dressing and I served it as an argula salad with beans. Delicious. My guests LOVED it. Thanks!!
