The recipe was SO good! I was whipping up a fast meal to help my parents with harvest, so I wanted a salad that I wouldn't have to worry about keeping it cold. My parents, husband and the other people helping all raved about it! Thanks so much for sharing!

Good stuff! My family raved about this. I added some cider vinegar at the end because we like a little more tartness.

My recipe for bean salad is so similar to this, that I am using this recipe instead of adding my own. I add 1 can of garbanzo beans and use red wine vinegar instead of regular vinegar. I like to use only 1/4 C oil; I don't think the salad needs a lot of oil, only enough to make the dressing cling to the beans. I also omit the green pepper since my husband doesn't like them. I use less sugar, but that is a matter of taste.

Tastes like beans in a soup, sweet & sour pickling solution.

Oh, my! Unbelievable for a cookout. This is so easy. I threw in extra beans--a can of black beans and a can of great northern beans with the dressing as printed. There was plenty of dressing.

I prepared this for a bar-b-q and it was a hit! I added a can of corn and a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper to the dressing.

Everything came together in about 15 minutes, prep included and turned out great. There was quite a lot more dressing than I preferred and I would probably cut it in half for next time. I also substituted celery for green pepper, which gave it a nice bite. Very versatile recipe!
