  1. In a large bowl, layer the beans, onion and green pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, mix the vinegar, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, oil, mustard, tarragon and cilantro. Cook and stir over medium heat until sweetener has dissolved. Remove from heat and pour over bean mixture. Stir until all ingredients are coated. This is best if it is left to marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator, and stirred occasionally.

This is my mother-in-law's recipe, but use basil and NO cilantro. Very tasty and always a hit a pot lucks.

This is a good recipe IF you can tolerate Splenda. I don't care for the taste of Splenda but hubby doesn't usually mind it. This was a bit too much "Splenda" taste - even for him .... I am rating this middle of the road, as it isn't a bad recipe, just not for us.

I swapped the Splenda out for regular old sugar and had to use oregano because I was out of tarragon but this is a yummy version of the classic!

I doubled the recipe, didn't use tarragon, cilantro or splenda. Substituted regular sugar for the splenda. Also, had no red wine vinegar so, since I doubled the recipe, I used 3/4c up red wine and white vinegar. Mixed it all up, let it set overnight in the fridge, perfect. Tastes like the salad my grandmother used to make.

I make this very often as a regular "supplement" to my diet in order to get more legumes in. I follow most of the recipe, cutting back slightly on oil and vinegar. But I have never added the sweetener. Why would I want my beans sweet when I can have them oh-so-savoury? Ditch the sweetener and you'll have a very healthy addition to any meal of the day.
