In my view a bean salad is a bean salad is a bean salad. They're all good, but none really stands out from another. But THIS one? One thought says it all - the lime dressing makes THIS bean salad stand-out delicious!
I was a little concerned about 1 tsp of pepper, but it wasn't too much. The lime really brightens this salad (I added just a little more lime juice). Pretty nice bean salad, and a healthy dose of daily fiber.
This was a great recipe, thanks! If followed exactly, its quite yummy, and theres much room to tinker and adjust as well. Sometimes I add crushed garlic, or switch the cilantro out for basil. Have yet to find a combo that didn't work. I've made this a half dozen times since finding this recipe less than 2 months ago!
This is one of the top recipes I've made from this site. It's fresh, delicious and healthy. Every time I have made it (which has been nearly every gathering recently), someone asks me for the recipe. It is SO good!
This salad is just amazing. It is so simple yet so flavorful. I've made it 3 times now, as it is great to have ready for quick lunches. I leave out the raw onion and cucumber, as I just don't enjoy those flavors. And I've found I can cut the oil down to 2 tbs with no consequences. Tonight I went to make it and realized I had no garbanzos! So I used fava beans, which added another whole dimension. I certainly suggest trying that if you are a fan of fava beans. Fava and garbanzos together would really pack a punch... Might try that next time!
Excellent! Quick , easy & healthy. I was out of cilantro and planned on buying more but, the salad was gone before I got to the store! I made it the next day and used lemon juice because I was out of lime (no zest either) and it was still excellent. This is a very flexible recipe. I added some olives to my serving and they were delicious.
Fast, simple, pretty, delicious, and healthy...what else is there to want?
This was absolutely delicious. I put in a little more lime to counter the cilantro. I don't like cilantro. And I used green onions because that's what I had in hand. Excellent bean salad!!
