    Yummy for the tummy! Can't wait to make, especially with temps heading towards the 90's with high humidity. This will hit the spot. Thanks for sharing.

    I am drooling already just from reading the recipe! I like bean salad, and so does my mother, so I will have to try this recipe out over the summer. It is a nice change from a tossed salad.
Thanks for sharing it!
