Fabulous Hot Five Bean Salad

Recipe by  

"This dish is served hot, and is the best bean salad I've ever had. I make it with black beans, kidney beans, green beans, wax beans, and garbanzo beans. You may not like one or more of the types of beans listed above - just substitute your favorites. This dish is especially good for taking to potluck suppers."

Fabulous indeed. A shame it's the farthest thing from dietetic... I don't like garbanzo beans so I replaced them with a can of white lima beans. Delicious.

Sorry to be the "black sheep" so to speak...but I wasn't crazy about this dish. I love beans but just didn't enjoy them cooked this way. The sugar was very overwhelming and I didn't like the combination of beans. Some were soft and others were tough in texture. I got confused while I was chewing. I did eat a bowl...just becasue they are soooo healthy. But one word of advice...plan on sleeping ALONE after you've eaten this ;)

My husband just loves this dish-we are vegetarians so I use 'veggie' bacon and a bit of canola oil instead of pork. I saute about 1/2 of a thinly slided onion with the 'bacon'. We eat the leftovers cold with rolls for lunch the next day. Thank you Jodi T. for this great recipe!

Very tasty! I think it also tastes better after it chills a day, the flavors blend more. Also good cold.

I personally don't like bean salads, but my hubby does. I found this recipe and it sounded like something he would like, so I made it for him. He really liked it, although he thought it would be better cold. Also, there was so much left that he reheated it the next night and I think he liked it better the 2nd time around!! Definitely worth a try!

This recipe is divine! I've made it twice in the last couple of weeks. My husband and I can't get enough of it! A new favorite!

Yum! German potato salad dressing mixed with a variety of beans. It's quick and easy to make - perfect for a weekday side dish.
