This was very easy and really good. My family enjoyed it. - 08 Oct 2008


I made this Bean Salad a staff party - I love recipes that can be made in advance, kept in the fridge overnight and transported easily to the party. In fact, sitting overnight really helped the flavours to blend. What a GREAT salad!! - 08 Oct 2008


This bean salad was very good, fairly easy to prep, will keep forever in the fridge. Kids had seconds. Thought it could stand a touch more vinegar flavour, maybe useing a stronger type of vinegar would do the trick. Will use this recipe again. Thanks Kathleen - 08 Oct 2008
