    First - this dish is BEAUTIFUL with all the colour! 2nd, I omitted the stevia because the corn is sweet enough and I substituted frozen peas for the butter/lima beans. Next time, I will reduce the oil. Otherwise, FANTASTIC! - 6/9/09

    I always turned my nose up at Mom's bean salad because of the garbanzo beans. It seems you have replaced them with corn. What a great idea! Can't wait to try it! And I love that it calls for Stevia instead of Sugar or (gasp!) Splenda. - 11/12/08

    I like the addition of ginger, but I omitted the sweetener and substituted balsamic vinegar for most of the cider vinegar. It turned out to be a very tasty and colorful variation on the standard bean salad. - 8/8/10

    Love bean salad esp. in the summer. My quick and easy recipe is to drain a can of low sodium mixed vegetables and add a can of 3 or 4 bean salad. The juice in the can of bean salad is enough to marinate the vegetables. Quick, easy and slightly different from time to time. - 6/6/10

    I like this as a foundation for adding legumes to my diet. The sodium in canned beans is so high that I pressure-cooked the kidneys & limas from scratch. I used fresh steamed corn and cut it from the cob. I did not add any sweetener but used more ginger. Next time I'll add black bean & lime juice. - 6/28/10

    I find butter beans lose their skins and look messy. I will go back to using the Limas. I love bean slad in the summer as a measured snack. I find stevia way too sweet. No corn used Chick peas, ginger made it cloudy. Wash canned beans well to remove sodium and then it this better than store bought. - 6/6/10
