Making this colorful salad a day ahead gives it time to marinate. We love its flavorful tangy-sweet dressing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2013

This was great! For a change, use some chick peas and perhaps 1/2 red & 1/2 white kidney beans. Dressing does not overwhelm - which is great.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2012

Very quick and easy too make. I made it for a salad luncheon and everyone thought it was wonderful.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2012

This salad is way better than the ready-made (canned) 3-bean salads (from various brands) that you can buy in the store. Do yourself and your family a favor, go ahead and make this instead of buying a pre-made one. This serves more people, and tastes better, too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 21, 2011

Even though I don't care for canned vegetables, this was very good. The celery adds a nice crunch, and you can add in other fresh vegetables if you like--zucchini, pepper, cucumbers. If I make it again, I would cut the oil in half to cut some of the fat from an otherwise healthy salad. If you like "pickled" dishes, you'll like this!
