What a lovely treat. We really enjoyed this dish, hot and cold. I served it both ways. All the beans work really well together. I used an apple cider vinegar, it blended well with the bacon and seasonings. Thanks so much for sharing Mysterygirl.

This makes a lovely blend of beans. I had to make a couple substitutions using butter beans in place of the limas and I used black eyed peas for the garbanzo beans. However, even with the substitutions, this recipe had perfect results! Easy to put together for a great way to serve beans! Thanks for sharing, Mystergirl!
