  1. I entered your 4 bean salad into my recipe builder and it came up 3 points per serving my guess is the balsamic vinaigrette could be the difference. Do you use a specific brand or your own recipe? Although the olive oil is 8 points. Thank you. I am making this today.

    1. Hi Kandy,

      I did use a balsamic vinegar from my supermarket here in the UK. Maybe this ingredient changes based on location? I will do some research about it. Enjoy your salad.
