This is from Mary Kaye Rackowitz as posted on allrecipes.com. It is a little different for bean salad, at least for me. I personally thought it was a little on the sweet side at first, but my husband enjoys it as is and so have guests. It is growing on me. Prep time includes chilling.

- 1 (9 ounce) package frozen green beans, thawed
