Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

As a recipe's first reviewer, one can sometimes be in unfamiliar territory without the benefit of others' remarks. As this recipe's first reviewer, that wasn't an issue for me. While this is called a Lebanese Bean Salad, it could just as easily be called an Italian Bean Salad, for the ingredients, the flavors, are the same. I knew I'd love it! In my mind you just can't go wrong with the light dressing of olive oil and lemon. (Tho' I could take or leave the fava beans, personally)
great flavor...added light kidney beans, herbs de prvovince and some basil and lemon terragon...lots of compliments
I didn't have fava beans so I used red kidney beans- delicious!!! Love this simple, easy to make bean salad! It has become a staple in our house- even my 4 year old daughters love it!
I loved this recipe. I added some tarragon, because I like that fennel-like sweet taste that tarragon has, and fennel would over-power this dish. I also added a splash of apple cider vinegar. The hubble liked it a lot, too, but I thought he was going to blast me out of the bed that night! So, be warned. Beans can be a musical fruit AND a war horn. But, then again, they're, purportedly, good for your heart.
This is a very good, very simple recipe. I LOVE garlic, but this was a tad garlicy for someone who isn't crazy about. That's a plus to me though. I also added about 1/2 of a cup of frozen corn, about a Tbs of red wine vinegar and about a half a cup of low fat feta on my second go around. These are all approximations as I just kinda poured in each ingredient until it looked good. Very good recipe that lends itself to personalization if desired.
I made this according to the recipe and it was really good. I served it as a side to Lebanese roast chicken and potatoes.
I was unable to find fava beans at my usual store, so I used garbanzos, canolinis (or whatever they call white kidney beans), and small navy beans. I don't know what the other trio is supposed to taste like, but after day 2, this was incredible!
