Very good! This salad is such a nice change from the usual 3 bean salad. I really liked how easy it was to prepare too. I used about 1/3 cup oil as suggested and that was perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Quite tasty. I took Dave_in_CO's advice and cut back the olive oil to 1/3 cup, substituted lemon juice for the vinegar (but gave it a quick shot of vinegar too). As we don't get vidalia onions where I come from, I used a french shallot instead. I also substituted canned corn kernels for the yellow beans as we don't get them either. Kidney beans are not a great favourite in our household, but this salad was well received.

This is the best 3 bean salad I've ever eaten. However next time I make it I'm going to cut back the olive oil to 1/3 cup, it's a tad too saucy at 1/2 cup.
