    How great is this? Beans, onions, parsley, tomatoes? A marriage made in heaven for sure. I used pinto beans but followed the recipe exactly, except~I reduced the servings. I grabbed a fresh tomato from the garden, mixed with the oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, and EVOO. The vinegar was right on, and added a bit of tartness that was welcomed. Perfect cookie! Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.

    We really liked this recipe. I used both kidney beans and black beans only because we do!! Also used canned tomatoes because that was all I had but it turned out great in sprite of the canned tomatoes. Very refreshing and tasty. Will be making this again for sure. Made for ZWT4.

    So easy and refreshing! This was great. I get tired of the same old salads, so this will be a great way to change up the rotation. Thanks for sharing!

    Loved this! Made it up in the morning and took it to the beach where we served it with a variety of grilled meats. Absolutely delicious.

    We enjoyed this, modified a bit to fit our tastes. I used fava (butter) beans, which we both really like. Reduced the olive oil, red pepper flakes and onion a bit, and increased the vinegar. So easy to make. I left it in the refrigerator to soak a couple of hours before dinner. The whole dish was gone in one meal between the two of us:D

    An easy nutritious side dish. I used kidney beans, and dried parley, which turned out fine. The dish is mostly beans – I would double the amount of tomatoes next time for a lighter taste. We ate it chilled, with baked corn chips. I think this would transport well for a picnic or casual potluck.
