This is a very nice salad that I think everyone will like. All of the flavors blend well together. I used sugar snap beans in place of both the green beans and peas and I did not blanch anything. The flavors and textures were just right after sitting for 6 to 8 hours. I also didn't add any water and the vegetables did provide their own. The more I ate this, the better I liked it. Made for PAC, Spring 2012.
