Hubby is the bean salad expert and he thought the dressing wasn't quite what he expected. I usually use a 3 : 1 ratio of oil to vinegar.

It was good, but the sauce wasn't as vinegary as I like. Great combination of vegetables though!

Very good recipe, I also put a can of pinto beans in it.

I think this salad is excellent. It's simple to prepare. I prefer making my own salads at home instead of purchasing the pre-made ones at the grocery deli counter. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I usually try to follow the directions exactly. I didn't have any jars of pimento peppers at home so I omitted that ingredient.
