I adore AllRecipes and other online recipe sites. But when I have doubts about proportions, I go back to my tried and true, trusted cookbooks to see what they say. I will be darned if the latest version of Joy of Cooking (1997) doesn't call for the exact same proportions for the dressing of a bean salad, and with a lot less beans.
But sometimes you have to just get real with yourself and your personal tastes and say, "Whoa, that is waaaay too much sugar." I cut back by half, and I'm glad I did.
Otherwise,I thought it was a great, versatile and adaptable recipe. Thank you, chemjo!
