Red Bean Salad
This recipe originally came from Loretta Lynn’s Cookbook, You’re Cookin It Country. The longest part of this recipe is hard boiling the eggs. If you have some eggs cooked up ahead, you could toss this together in about 2 minutes flat. Be sure to put it in the refrigerator for a few hours to let the flavors incorporate. It gets better with time.
