This was excellent and I don't like most bean salads. I would definitely recommend it.

This is a very quick salad especially if you use the jarred roasted red peppers. I like to serve it in the summer with BBQ.

This salad tastes like it came from a fancy deli and is so easy to put together with the jarred roasted red peppers. I prefer to make it the day before I plan to serve it.
