This is wonderful! I just gave my husband a taste before we take it to a potluck tomorrow. His comment was, "You are a great cook!" Thanks to Tweeky I was able to say, "Great recipes make great cooks!" :) I am so sick of mayo salads and this makes a fantastic change! I can't wait to take it to the potluck! 5 stars from our household! :)
It's the weirdest thing...I LOVE this recipe and have made it several times for different events. The problem is that although some people liked it, most of them didn't. I did encourage people to try it. Maybe it's the visual of beans mixed in pasta salad...I just don't know.
Yummy Yummy Yummy ! and easy. I was intrigued by the addition of baked beans (never thought of that one!) and all the raves. This will be going to the Church & Eastern Star picnics this summer -love that it doesn't have mayo. So far I've had it accompanied by chicken/apple dogs & blackened fish. "my tummy is smiling." Thanks for the recipe!
DELICIOUS! & so easy! I can't wait to share it at the potluck I'm attending this evening @ my homeowners assoc. mtg. I'm expecting lots of requests @ the recipe!!Thanks for sharing this recipe, Tweeky
This salad is so good and it gets better and better the longer it is refrigerated. I LOVE the fact that it's not laden with mayo. Will make this again for sure! Thank you for posting this unusual recipe!
I made the smaller version using the proportions in step 7. I wanted to see if it was something I would want to bring to family barbecues or neighborhood potlucks. Answer - YES! I am sure it will be repeated often.
I prepared this salad this evening because it sounded so interesting and I need something for potluck at work Friday. I didn't want any surprises so was trying it out beforehand. Well...SURPRISE!! It is awesome......I know it will be a hit at work....so I am doubling the recipe. Thanks, for posting this little gem.
Well how about this!!? A pasta salad without Mayo!! It was a joy. I took it to a potluck and of all the pasta salads there this one was gone!! It was just a terrific salad. I really enjoyed the beans instead of Mayo. Great substitution. Thanks for posting this Tweeky.
