    This salad was really good, especially wrapped in flat bread. Like another reviewer, I sauteed the onion and celery together versus dirtying another pan to boil the celery. I realized I only had a green bell pepper and was in a hurry so I just diced up a jarred roasted red bell pepper. I used canned beans, therefore I skipped step one. I liked the combination of mayo and cider vinegar and definitely thought the recipe benefitted from the addition of hot sauce. This came together in snap and made for a flavorful sandwich filling that I enjoyed. Thanks! Made for ZWT9.

    ok i cheated i just sauted the trinity together ,and fished beans out of the crock pot before i made other recipe and i can eat my beans cold in this weather thats a plus im not sure about mayo for me next time,i think oil and vinegar is enough,cause it gives it a muddy look, tastes good though zwt9
