Bean salad is an old fashioned type of refrigerator salad. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of nostalgic cooking, so, it was time to add this salad to my recipe archives. The flavor of the brine has a sweet and sour edge and we enjoy a bit of heat by adding red pepper flakes. It’s a perfect salad for making in advance and it gets even better the longer it sits.
