Very good for a nice lunch. I like to make the day before and have it the next day, so all the flavors have "melded" together. Cook time includes chill time.

This recipe is great! I didn't have any mint on hand, but it tasted great anyway. It's easy to throw together and works wonderfully as a summer dish.

This is excellent. I left out the olive oil and used the rest of the ingredients. Wonderful salad. I love kidney beans and this will be a regular with me. Thanks!
