Beans from a can are fine. I just don't use them because I have the garden and use dried kidney, etc., beans.

Luckytrim, I'm sorry you felt that because you used canned beans, it couldn't be part of the thread I started. I don't use canned beans because we grow sooooo many beans (wax and green). I use dried beans because I prefer the texture of them over canned kidney/lima/etc. beans. Your salad looks lovely and the dressing sounds like a nice change from my "stuck in a rut" curry dressing. I have to make bean salad again next week (well, I don't have to, but I'm getting tired of processing beans). And, the corn is ready, as are the tomatoes, so I can change it up a bit, and your dressing sounds as if it would work with the corn and diced tomatoes. I don't know if the threads can be merged or not.

Luckytrim, this sounds great! We usually have only canned beans except during the summer. I would not have thought about the peas.
