I bought a large bag of fresh beans on special from the supermarket and made this recipe twice with them.<br/>So quick and easy to make, I served it chilled and the family loved this. The left overs were taken for lunches and were just as good next day.<br/>An easy salad I will be making during summer again and again. I am even going to plant beans next season for this recipe. Thanks Peggy.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #61* THIS is a winner, Peggy ! I had picked up a 1/2 pound bag of haricot vert, in the steam-in-bag and decided to prepare this for our side with pasta. Had no red onion, but that's OK, mixed remaining ingredients (had pear infused white balsamic), and poured the mixture over the hot beans when they came out of the microwave. Just let them sit on the counter for about an hour, and served them room temperature -- no lettuce. We ate the WHOLE thing -- enthusiastically ! Next time I will steam less than 3 minutes, and add no sugar. This will be the next contribution to a pitch-in party ! Many thanks for posting --( maybe even for next Thanksgiving !)

I'm eating the leftovers for lunch right now. It's delicious! I forgot the parsley and sugar and didn't use any lettuce leaves. I'll be making this one again!

This was a very nice green bean recipe. I followed the recipe according to the directions with the only difference being I did serve it warm and I skipped the lettuce leaves. It is a nice combination of tart and sweet. Loved the fire roasted red pepper.

This is a great way to serve green beans. The dressing is right on and really compliments the beans. The red bell and red onion added color and a nice crunch. This easy dish will surely impress. Thanks for sharing it, LeggyPeggy!!!

Tasty and pretty bean salad! I cheated and used canned green beans and it was still great! I used 1 T apple cider vinegar and 1 T balsamic vinegar and a full 2 t of the sugar. THANKS! Made for Aus/NZ December Tag.

Delicious! We loved this flavorful green bean salad. I served this chilled and my family raved over it. I did add 2 cloves minced garlic and about 1/4 tsp. crushed red chili pepper flakes to the dressing for some added zip. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! *Made for AUS/NZ swap #22*

It certainly is a 5 star recipe! I loved it! I often boiled green beans as a salad but I found that the red pepper made the difference. The aroma of the salad was amazing. I had to leave out the parsley cause I didn't have any and I also used just a little sugar. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!
