"It's a hot evening and I didn't feel much like cooking. Made this bean salad to go with hot dogs on a bun. This salad is easy to make , different from the usual pasta salads and very tasty. It is for certain that I will add this to my collection of pasta salads recipes."

"This is so easy to make and it's a nice change of pace from the usual mayo based macaroni salad or the Italian dressing based pasta salads. Would definately recommend trying."
