"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!"
