"This is a very garlicky salad. A nice fast dinner. A slight adaptation from a recipe in "Weight Watchers Miracle Foods" cookbook. Each serving is 3 points as written. Though I suggest a tad more sauce, which would make the points go up a smidge. Red onion is preferred because of the milder taste. If you like the taste of raw onion, then yellow is fine too. The original recipe called for serving it immediately. I like to let it sit a few minutes so the tastes will meld, but it would not keep for more then an hour or 2. If you don't have baby greens, spinach would be excellent."

"This was very unexpectadly great. I need to balance my carbs and protein and this one did the trick. I made the bean and dressing part (great northern beans) and doubled the dressing (I might triple it next not sure yet) and just toss with salad green when ready."
"This is just oh so tasty if you like garlic like I do. I used 1-1/2 cloves of garlic and I mixed the dressing with the beans and onion about 1/2 an hour before serving when I quickly tossed the baby greens through. This will be a favourite for me, thanks ladypit."
"YUMMY recipe! Made with baby spinach (no clue how much...I just kept adding it until it looked good), red onion, baby white beans, and red wine vinegar (all personal prefs). After sitting in the fridge overnight it made a FABULOUS lunch with a bagel. I'll definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing!"
"What a great salad! I doubled the dressing, but besides that I followed the directions. We really enjoyed this and I'll definitely make this again. Thank you Ladypit for posting."
"OMG! I can't believe I love a salad so much - especially one with no cheese or creamy dressing. I doubled the dressing and left out the onion (personal taste), and used the baby greens straight out of the package instead of chopping them. Also used kosher salt, which I think makes a big difference. Thank you for this delicious, healthy main dish salad recipe!!"
"This may be the best salad ever! I doubled the dressing and 4 crushed garlic cloves (I am a garlic fiend), but otherwise left everything the same. I am always on the lookout for different kinds of salads, especially ones that contain beans, so this was perfect. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is a nice, simple, tasty salad. I loved the garlic flavor in the dressing. Although there's very few ingredients, it does sort of fill you up because of the beans. I added a pinch of sugar to the dressing. I think I may add mushrroms next time as well. Thanx for posting!"
"Love, love, love this refreshing salad! To save time, I buy the pre-mixed organic "Fresh Herb" salad and chiffonade it into the other ingredients. So good! I use this dressing for all kinds of light salads."
"What a delicious salad! Didn't have any cider vinegar so I used balsamic. It was EXCELLENT over fresh picked romaine from my back yard garden. I will make this one again and again. Thanks so much!"
"Wonderful! Even the kids, who I thought would hate it, asked for seconds. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting."
"Great, basic, flavorful side for the garden burgers we enjoyed with it."
"This salad was wonderful. When I hit the store, the baby greens left a lot to be desired. Therefore, I subbed a chiffonade of baby spinach. I used Cannelloni beans and a red onion and tossed that with the dressing and let marinate while preparing the rest of dinner. I tossed in the shredded spinach just before serving. The salad was a good side with Recipe #85775."
"This was great with spinach and I used a can of great northern beans. I loved the garlic and onions-a refreshing salad!"
"Great recipe. Hubby and I enjoyed it (5 year old took one bite only). The garlic was perfect. Only problem I had was I did not cut the greens fine enough, therefore it was difficult to eat with a fork. I had leftovers the next day for lunch. After sitting the garlic flavor had lessened. "
"This is a very good salad. I used shredded spinach, and home-cooked beans, but otherwise followed the recipe. I liked the cider vinegar with the garlic. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. "
"Oh Wow, did we ever enjoy this! My DH kept saying, "This is excellent." I fixed it as a side dish with Steak San Marco. It could definitely stand alone. Very tasty. It looked different from most salads with the lettuce being chopped up so fine and the beans (I used small white ones) were as plentiful as the lettuce. The garlic dressing was very tasty and the one clove was enough for us. I couldn't stop eating it after the meal so the low points for WW went out the window!"
"Great salad! Like Latchy, I mixed the dressing and onions with the beans and let them marinate, then tossed in the greens at dinner time. Used red wine vinegar instead of the cider vinegar. Thanks so much for sharing this keeper!"
"This was very good and easy to put together. I used butter beans in place of navy beans(out of necessity) and it turned out tasty and good for you too! Thanks ladypit!"
