A super easy basic and really yummy salad. Great for summer picnics & BBQ. Great side dish for Italian, Greek, Lebanese.... Vary the beans... add cheese... other veg, peppers.

Just like it says...basic & simple. Delicious & healthy, too. I added a splash of red wine vinegar as well. Made for a 4th of July get-together. Threw in some leftover chopped bell peppers before putting the leftovers in the fridge. Think I used two cloves of garlic, too. Thanks!
