Reviews for Bean Tossed Salad
"I came across this recipe a couple of years ago when I was looking for a new salad to make for a family BBQ. Everyone loved it, including my husband who is not a big salad eater, and I've been making it all summer long ever since."
"I've been making this salad since my college-dormitory days, over thirty-five years ago. It's still a favorite. For nostalgic authenticity I always use corn chips."
