This was so delicious. I made it for a picnic this Memorial Day Weekend for 10 of us. Everyone thought this was the best bean salad they have had. I used a red pepper because of personal choice and I used sugar not sweetener, otherwise everything else was the same. I loved this salad for being quick to make and so colorful. I made it the night before so flavors had time to blend together. I am so glad I have a bit leftover for my lunch. Thanks so much for posting this delicious salad recipe.

Very good, colorful salad. The carrots were a nice addition to the bean salad. I used dried onions because raw onions are too strong for me. I also used dried parsley becuase I didn't have any fresh.

I really liked this salad. For health reasons I can't eat fresh vegs that can't be washed well and peeled. It way easy to make and I also did not have parsley, and because of the washing thing I would have left it out anyways. I aslo took some to waor to share and they liked it too. Thanks for posting this. Will make again.

This is a great recipe. I used frozen green beans, french style and fresh carrots. Did not have any parsley so I left it out. This was so easy to put together. Have already made this twice as I liked it that much. Thanks for the recipe.

I love bean salad so was anxious to try this. It turned out great and was a nice change from the usual which has wax beans that I don't like. The addition of the carrots added nice color and flavor. Thanks for posting!
