Mix all ingredients and let stay overnight to marry flavors. Some parsley sprigs to decorate this simple salad.
This is an example of a simple bean salad. If it were green beans I would leave out the garlic and add some chopped onion and pimento for color.
You can make hundreds of salads like this, using leftovers and a good Sauce Vinaigrette. Many is the time I have had a trifle of smoked meat, like ham and diced it and added it to this salad.
Are you shocked that I used canned beans? I've been using them for years, and Goya is my favorite brand, but the A&P Masterchoice brand is good too.
Do I cook my own beans, ever? Only if I have a ham bone I don't know what to do with, but mostly they become soup because I love bean soup.
Pick them over for stones and rinse well in a colander.
Cover them with cold water, bring to a boil and let stay overnight.
Cover them with stock or water, add diced onion, garlic, carrot, and a ham bone, bring to boil and simmer tender, often within an hour, if they are to be cooked in another dish.
