Italian White Beans & Sausage Salad

"This recipe was in Prevention Magazine a couple of years ago. My family and I love it during the hot summer months when you don't want to do much cooking. Goes over great at potlucks too."

  1. So good! I can see why it does well at potlucks. I tasted it right after mixing, and then again, after chilling. My vote, hands down, chill it! Other notes: I used Isernio Mild Italian Chicken Sausage, sweet onion, dried parsley (1 Tablespoon), and I completely forgot to add the pepper (going to do that now). Thanks, Mysterygirl!
  2. This taste yummy! I browned the chopped turkey sausage with one of the tablespoons of olive oil and I added mustard pepper seasoning. I had only the red kidney beans not the white and it was still delicious. I added 1 pkg. of splenda in the dressing and it is wonderful! I may have gone a little heavy on the parsley to suit my taste. I will make this many times this summer and it will be a GREAT camping dish!
  3. Shockingly good!!!!! Thank you so much for posting! The only "change" I made was to add minced garlic. Oh, and we used Tofurkey vegan sausage :O
  4. I love this recipe. You can add so many variations too. I served it to my husband with chips and sour cream.
  5. Very good recipe!! Made to bring to work for a potluck and was pleased with the results. Textures mix well and flavors meld nicely (especially the next day).

Back then the original owners Troy and Gay ran the site and they had a lot of interaction with the members. I miss them. <br /> <br />Through the years it still remains to this day my favorite go to site and the one that I send all of my friends and family to when they need anything.</p> 8724616"
