Lorac, When I found this recipe, I couldn't wait to try it. It sounded good and looked good, but I was somehow disappointed with the end results. Lorac, I certainly hope you won't hold it against me, that I wasn't able to give this recipe more than the one star. I am however pleased to see the others here enjoyed the salad. Anyway, I do want to thank you for posting the recipe!
It's been very hot here, and this was just the ticket for a no-cook meal this week. I used black beans instead of kidney beans because (1) they are my favorite and (2) that's what I had on hand. ;-) I was tempted to add salt and pepper, but it's not needed with the ranch dressing.
This was excellent! I made it a day before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. At first, I thought it would be too wet from all of the Ranch but it was perfect. I used white kidney beans and they were a great twist. I would have never thought to add any of these things to tuna but it all went very well together. Thanks so much for posting and PLEASE get better soon!
We really did like this salad. I had never thought of using ranch dressing instead of mayonnaise. The colors were all terrific and the flavors were distinctive and pleasant together. Thanks Lorac. I will keep this one in my Zarrite's Tried and True cookbook.
