I use frozen veggies (no cooking or thawing ahead of time) instead of canned and use a red bell pepper and purple onion for more color. I love this on hot summer days.

This was way too SWEET for us. My husband couldn't even eat it. I tried to salvage the dish by adding more white wine vinegar. When I tried it the next day, it was a little better but I wouldn't bother making it again.

This was really tasty, but only needed half amount of the sauce.

This salad is delicious, but made too much dressing for me. Next time I will only make 1/2 as much dressing

Love this type of salad ... you can make a little or make a lot - depending on what the need is for. It's refreshing for summer get togethers.

This recipe gets 5 stars with my changes; omitted bell pepper and substituted chopped water chestnuts for celery. Our dinner guests raved about it asking for the recipe. This salad is really better in a day or two. It does make a lot of dressing but it's great sopped up with some good sour dough bread! I'll be making this in place of my usual 3 bean salad. Thanks.

I love this salad. I make it just as written. The sauce is meant to be a MARINADE not a dressing! Good grief people! I serve it with a slotted spoon and it's the perfect addition to a summer barbeque.

I have been looking for this recipe or one similar since my mother-n-law died. She made this from memory so it wasn't in her recipe stash. The only difference is she used apple cider vinegar.
