I thought this was great for a fat free recipe. I did tweak it to reduce calories by substituting the sugar with no calorie sweetener. I used a relish that had Splenda in it. Also, I would recommend using apple cider vinegar (if that's your preference) instead of white vinegar. Another can of kidney beans would be fabulous, and you could easily change this to a more traditional three bean salad by using regular canned green beans and canned waxed beans. Garbanzo beans would be a great addition as well.

Two stars because the quantities needed changing. I used fresh green and yellow beans, that were cooked tender-crisp. One cup of chopped sweet onion is enough and if using sweet pickle relish reduce quantity to 1/4 cup. I increased chopped peppers to 1 cup and used red and green. Alter the quantities of white vinegar and sugar to taste. Some enjoy tart and some sweet. The bones of this recipe are good; nice combination but it needed, for me, adjustment. It's worth making and different.
