I liked it, but family wasn't crazy about it. Too many beans they said!

The recipe calls for a lot of mustard and onion which over powered the taste ! wasn't so good

I liked it but the rest of the family was less enthusiastic. I did serve it over a bed of greens. If I made it again, I'd probably use different beans (kidney maybe), increase the tomato, cut the oil in half and add a bit of crumbled feta to the top.

Absolutely delicious and incredibly easy. I used up my leftover rotisserie chicken, threw everything together in a few minutes, and everyone loved it - including my four year old. I actually didn't have enough cannellini beans for this, so I used butter beans instead - lovely. I'm putting this on my regular recipe list!

Delicious, easy, fresh-tasting. I'm making the salad dressing a staple for salads. A great use for left-over rotisserie chicken; it added some extra chew and meatiness to the meal without making it seem like a chicken dinner.

This was a great salad. I made it with garbanzo beans instead of butter beans, but everything was kept the same as the recipe and it was quite tasty. Perfect for a light summer meal - especially when you have fresh tomatoes and basil from the farmers market like I did - Yum!

A quick dinner salad without lettuce, for a change. I liked it a lot my husband not quite as much. I substituted cilantro for the basil as we aren't basil fans. I'll make this again but eat it for my lunch not his dinner.
