I love this recipe and have made it several times. I use 1 can of cannellini and 1 can of black beans. I also omit the red onion but double the green onion.

I try new recipes all the time and ask friends if they think I should make again. If they like it, then I keep the recipes and use it again. 7 out of 7 people agreed this was a "keeper".

I'm a fan! I normally don't like beans or bean salad but this was really good! Balsamic was a nice change from red wine vinegar...definitely will make again!
