Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long will this last and can I make it ahead? You can make this dish 1 day ahead of serving but do not add the dressing until ready to serve. It is always best as fresh as possible.
  • Can I freeze this dish? Do not freeze this dish as it will will be completely wilted and soggy when thawed.
  • How long will it last in the refrigerator? After you have added the dressing and have some left, I have eaten this the following day and it is still very crisp and fresh. More than 1 day old it will not be nearly as crisp and will needed tossed.
  • Can I make my bean salad Mexican? Not per se, but feel free to add spice.
