Honey Bean Salad

Recipe by  

"This is SO delicious! I put this together after an x-ray because I wanted to eat something high in antioxidants and honey (for its antibacterial properties). What I ended up was a salad SO tasty, I just had to share it here. I'm sure that even the pickiest bean hating eater will love this dish! This is my new favorite and I can't wait to go and make some more!"

This is a wonderful way to eat kidney beans! We skipped the sage and hot sauce cause the kids don't care for those. We all loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!

Not my thing. My husband said it had a lot of flavor, but he won't be served this again.

This was awesome! I did not use sage I used fresh rosemary instead and I used a can of light red kidney beans and a can of white kidney for some color. We really enjoyed this and its something different to do with kidney beans =)

This was very interesting, and pretty good, too! I'm not sure that I would make it again, but it was a nice to have something different.

Surprisingly good. I also added a bit of minced onion, and used two types of kidney beans for visual interest. might add green or wax beans next time around.

This recipe is delicious - I've made it many, many times. I always follow the dressing ingredients exactly. I have varied the bean combinations and any are great. I like extra vegetables and crunch, so I always add 2 chopped sweet bell peppers, 2 or more ribs of chopped celery and a couple of green onions. I find there is enough dressing in the original recipe to accommodate the extra ingredients nicely.
