Reviews for Festive Bean Salad
"Definitely better the next day. I actually didn't really like it on the first night and almost threw it out. Glad I tried it again the next day!"
"This is a great, different bean salad. Wonderful to send in my husband's summer lunches. Good protein but lower in fat than many salads."
"Family doesn't eat black olives, so I omitted them. Yummy. Nice texture combinations."
