1 bottle of bottled Italian dressing (I used Wishbone)

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

pearled mozzarella balls (optional) 



Cool Bean Salad

Serves 6 - My mom introduced me to this delicious and healthy recipe. She commented on the phone last night that she thought it was the best dish she has ever made. She always has requests to bring it again and again.
