"This is my favorite summer salad recipe. I make the day before because it tastes better the second day when the flavors blend (and they blend nicely!). It's a very pretty salad that you'll be proud to serve."

"I'm jumping on the bandwagon about how good this is. I got a late start, so it only marinated for about 4 hours before we had it for supper and it was great. I know it will be even better tomorrow in my lunch. Thanks for a great recipe to use both the green beans and the red potatoes I got this week!"
"Another fanastic recipe and one I will reach for first in my recipe box. It compliments any entree dish. Loved it! Perfect for summer entertaining, so delicious and nutritious!"
"Delicious! We really enjoyed the wonderful combination of flavors in this salad. It definitely is better when allowed to marinate overnight. I made as written except that I chunked up the tomatoes and added them with the rest of the ingredients so they could marinate overnight as well. I will be making this salad frequently in the summer when I always have an overabundance of green beans and tomatoes from my garden. Thank you for sharing this recipe...it is definitely a keeper!"
"This was very good. Made exactly as written - the balance of oil and vinegar was perfect. Thanks!"
"What a nice change (and probably healthier) from traditional potato salads. I had trouble waiting a day for flavors to blend--kept dipping into it hours after mixing the ingredients together (it was yummy even at that point!) Thanks for sharing."
"Gorgeous salad. A little strong for my tastes; will add more honey next time. It looks so fancy though; like you spent all day on it. A keeper for summer meals."
"Delicious with 24 hours marinating time. I was concerned the dressing would be too tart but it seems to mellow with the marinating time and was just perfect. I'm not a fan of dill so I subbed it with basil. Good hearty salad, Claudia Dawn."
"Excellent! Made just as posted and wouldn't change a thing. This is a pretty salad and just right during these hot summer evenings. Thanks for posting !"
"This made a wonderful side dish for our barbecued chicken dinner. Had no honey, so added a little Splenda instead. Otherwise, made as written. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Claudia."
"Delicious. I added some sugar to the dressing as I found it a little too tart. A great make ahead dish that would travel well for a picinic."
