No cooking involved. Canned beans make this easy to throw together.

These tasted very good. The only problem was that mine got a little bit soupy and didn't look very appetizing. I took it to a potluck and I think everyone was afraid to try it. I think I might not have drained the beans well enough. If I make this again I will be sure to drain them really well and maybe even rinse them in a colander to make sure to get that thick gunk from the can off.
Wordeful salad. I used only cannellini beans for this recipe that I boiled them myself. I also used dried red chili and fresh red bell pepper. I always used lemon juice in a bean salad but I'm now thinking that adding vinegar is so much better! That was my lunch for today and I really enjoyed it! Thanks for posting!
Made this Italian bean salad and served with Italian Garlic Chicken and Potatoes making for a delicious meal. Made as posted using cannellini beans and a can of baby lima beans - the limas being as close as I could find at the market for the butter beans - they were very good. We enjoy bean salads and this had a new to us taste... just enough to be added to my recipe file! Thank you CulinaryQueen.
