I never thought I'd like bean salad! This was great - although I didn't use quite as much sugar (about 1/2 cup) and I used a little more vegetable oil (again, about 1/2 cup). I wonder what it would be like with balsamic or red wine vinegar? Thanks.
Used black eyed peas, kidney and green beans as I did't have any of the others. Was delicious. Can't wait to make again.
I cut this recipe in half, added carrots, corn, and cucumbers.
I also added celery seed to my dressing/ brine, and heated it on the stove to dissolve the sugar so it wasn't granular.
My sister in law loved and so did I, and normally I HATE bean salads.
This is great
I'm glad I tried this salad and it turned out excellent. However, for $4.88 I can buy a big jar of 4 bean salad at Sam's Club - half the cost of the ingredients to make this recipe.
Well ! My husband just couldn't eat it. My 1.5 year old and I could eat a little and now I have the entire amount in the refrigerator. I don't know what to do.
I kinda made it my own.... 1 can of chic peas, 1 can of green beans, 1 can of kidney, 1 can of black, pimentos, can of diced chillis, 1 can of diced tomatoes, jar of artichokes, onion, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of lemon juice, 1/4 of olive oil, some italian seasoning...not bad, a good way to clean out your cupboards
I had to make a few adjustments because I live in Argentina now and the food variety is not as great. I basically just picked 4 different types of beans, whatever I could get. I had to skipe the pimiento peppers too. I used red wine vinegar and less sugar and it still turned out really tasty! I don't eat much meat so this is a great way to get protein and a perfect summer dish.
