    Debby H's Note:

    The story behind this comes from a simple recipe I had found, then made changes to make our own. My husband loved it so much the first time I made it I literally had to say to him "Put down your fork or you'll explode". So from that point on we have called it by this name. The ingredients may seem bland, but combined together they taste great and present well. Enjoy.

      Tasty, and very easy. I didn't have all the right ingredients: I used apple cider vinegar, dried basil, cucumbers and tomatoes (instead of the peppers), and no scallions. Still, delish!

      This tasted fantastic! I used balsamic vinegar and a whole red pepper.

      I used apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, and oregano parsley (what I had). I put in at least twice as many multi-colored bell peppers! To up the tang (white beans are quite plain), I added quite a bit of pickle brice, and a small scoop of finely chopped dill pickles. I ate mine with a side of toast for some crunch. Tasty and quite filling!

      Next time, a chopped tomato might go well ... and artichoke hearts ...
