Added black beans, subtituted brown sugar for white sugar...awesome.

The only ingredient I did not use was the green pepper, because I am allergic. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written and it was amazingly good! Just as I remember my mother and grandmother making it when I was young. I put this in my favorites list and we'll make it again!

Good ingredients with the promise of a good salad. I can't understand why people insist in adding sugar to salads. Try your favorite but forget the sugar. May surprise you.

I found this in my church potluck cookbook from taste of home. I made it to take to a church supper and everyone loved it. A definite keeper.
