About this recipe: A colourful, spicy, and refreshing bean salad.
Was really good, tasty and fresh although think the author has confused some of the quantities for the dressing eg tablespoon(s) instead of teaspoons for salt, pepper, cumin - 19 Jul 2013
I followed this recipe almost exactly (something new for me) and it was ... wow ... incredible. I served it at a party, and got rave reviews -- two people even asked for the recipe! Based on the feedback of others, I started out with only 1 tbl of sugar, then added more to taste. The end result was probably close to 2 tbl. I also added a bit of lemon and lime zest to the dressing. Warning: I think this recipe ends up closer to 10 servings. I had to make it in my huge wooden salad bowl, because even my largest mixing bowl wasn't adequate. By the way, this is even better after a few days, when the flavors have time to fully meld. I usually make this at least two days ahead of time. - 18 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The best bean salad I have made. I halved the oil, vinegar and sugar. Thank goodness I read the post. This amount suited the recipe just fine. Thanks - 15 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
