    This is a great summer salad. My family loves beans and we are always looking for new ways to incorporate them into our meals. When I think of summer and fresh tomatoes I think of this salad!

    Excellent salad. Easy to make, filling, nice side dish. I would increase lemon juice just a little.

    This was just the start. Added: tuna, left over cucumber, raw zucchini, red bell pepper and green bell pepper. Made it complete meal. Nothing left over.

    This was a great recipe to make really quick to go with some burgers. It's really a great healthy side. I added fresh rosemary to mine and it was great.

    Simple and delicious. I increased the lemon juice to 2 tablespoons, because I like the tarter flavor with the salad.
