Definitely better the next day. I actually didn't really like it on the first night and almost threw it out. Glad I tried it again the next day!

This is a great, different bean salad. Wonderful to send in my husband's summer lunches. Good protein but lower in fat than many salads.

This is not your average bean salad! It tastes 1000% better than a three bean salad, and I will make it again and again.

Family doesn't eat black olives, so I omitted them. Yummy. Nice texture combinations.
