"I've had this recipe quite a long time, although I have changed it somewhat from the original," comments Alden Thornton from Warrenton, Oregon. "It's always been popular, particularly when served at picnics and potlucks." Tip: If you are crunched for time, instead of roasting the pepper yourself, use roasted red peppers sold in jar, often near the pickles and condiments.

"This was excellent and I don't like most bean salads. I would definitely recommend it."

"This is a very quick salad especially if you use the jarred roasted red peppers. I like to serve it in the summer with BBQ."

Reviewed Jan. 1, 2009

"This salad tastes like it came from a fancy deli and is so easy to put together with the jarred roasted red peppers. I prefer to make it the day before I plan to serve it."
