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!
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!
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.
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!!
Great recipe! Thank you for sharing. I wanted something different and selected this from all the other bean salad recipes. For kicks and colors I added frozen/thawed/rinsed/drained petite sweet corn and petite sweet peas, and let the finished product marinate for more than a day (be sure to mix product or transfer to another container a couple times while marinating). Others like it also and received a couple requests for the recipe. Will most likely reduce the pepper next time.
Really good salad. Dressing was perfect. The only thing I did different was add chopped red bell pepper as well. Perfect for cook out or pot luck - no mayo to go bad!
