Reviews for Marinated Bean Salad
"refreshing dressing...the tarragon adds an extra flavor accent. nice way to use black-eyed peas."
"A delicious bean salad.I saw this one, and decided to try it as didn't know where my mom's recipe was. This has the same amount of sugar, oil and vinegar, and I like it because it isn't overly sweet. The tarragon adds an interesting taste that isn't overwhelming, and this salad has the addition of black-eyed peas, which is also different from my mom's.....adds to the taste overall. A great salad!"
