    This was very good indeed. I used Borlotti beans and Greek seasoned pink sea salt which was wonderful. I would add some finely minced garlic next time just because it would add that finishing touch. This is simple and makes a grand lunch salad.

    Mmmm, what a wonderful salad! So quick and easy to make with such a great flavour! I loved the combination of the zippyy red onion with the mellow beans. YUM! I will certainly make this again as everyone just raved about it! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, crazycookingmama! Made and reviewed for Photo Tag June 2010.

    This is delicious and made a great lunch. I did add some diced cucumber and a few chopped cherry tomatoes just to use up a few things from my refrigerator and they worked very well in this salad.

<p>A Very Happy Stay At Home Mom!!!! I have a soon to be 11year old that lives with his dad, his name is JayJay, and 3 living at home with me, and 1 on the way....I'm lovin' life! Ashton will be 8 in January, he's the smartest kid I know! Wrylie will be 6 in February and he's got more passion and caring in his little pinkie than most adults I know!!! And my very personal pride and joy Hennessey. She was born on the 27th of September 2007 and she's my little dollbaby. I love being at home with my children..love paying for ALL the stuff my 2nd grader brings home...soccer fees, and basketball fees, and book orders...I love cartin' my kindergartner around, and then coming home and cuddlin' with my little girl, and shopping for her favorite thing...shoes. My husband and I are as tight as 2 people can be, and I hate it when he leaves for work and can't wait until the clock strikes 4:30 because I know that means he's on his way home. Life is good. I couldn't ask for more.</p>
