From Cooking Light Magazine. A different twist on 3-bean salad, this makes enough for a crowd, and is great for potlucks. I never have leftovers! Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients- they come together quickly. Let this chill overnight for best flavor.

This really is better after marinating overnight. Love this salad.

This was pretty good, especially after marinating over 2 nights. At first, I didn't add onions. However, it needed that bite from onions. I added them and it was much better. I recommend eating this with a spoon; the beans fall right off a fork.

Great eye-appeal and wonderful taste! I did decrease the sugar to 2 T but otherwise made as written. I've never thought of a bean salad as _exciting_ but this one gives a burst of flavor with every bite. This recipe is sure to be repeated at my house. THanks!
