This is a nice summery side that uses flavorful olive oil and tastes fresh, even though it uses canned beans. It’s sure to perk up any picnic spread. Sandra Jackson - Mobile, AL

"I made this for dinner tonight. The flavors needed some adjustment. Vinegar and lemon juice were a bit much for my taste. I added a packet of Splenda. Next time I will eliminate the vinegar. Otherwise this was very good."
