Sante Fe Salad from the Best of Bridge cookbook The Best of the Best
I must tell you first, that I do not like bean salads. I know they are healthy for me, and I want to like them, so I will try them, but usually they are too beany. However, this recipe works for me. It has the heading that I have written into my book - Good, for a bean salad. I was at a party last week were someone brought this salad, and I heard two different people state that they don't like bean salads, but this one was good. That's what reminded me of this recipe, and I have made a batch to take to my Canada Day potluck party. Happy Canada Day!
