I thought this recipe was really good - I used cilantro instead of parsley and I put in vidalia onion instead of red onion. I use whatever beans I have in my kitchen, most of the time I make sure at least one of the beans is cut green beans.
I like this bean salad but I would cut the recipe in half. I found there was too much. I would also eliminate the rosemary and parsley. I think it has enough flavour with the dressing, celery and red onion added.
I've never been a huge fan of bean salad because it so vinegary. But I was assigned to make one for a luncheon and because I love cannellini beans, chickpeas and the fact this had a lemon juice dressing I choose this recipe. It was great! It seems the longer it sits they better it gets so I will always make this at least one day ahead....I highly recommend it! BTW it got rave reviews at the luncheon.
