Reader Recipe: Beloved Bean Salad

One of my favorite things to do in Spring is go on picnics. I pack up a small sack — making sure to add a bottle opener! — text some friends, grab YumJimmy and head to the park. One of the best parts is all the random snacks everyone brings. I'm always looking for a new addition to our usual repertoire, and when I saw this bean salad from TeamSugar member audreystar, I knew I had found a winner. Her recipe is handed down from her aunt, and it looks easy to throw together and great for any sort of get together. To get the recipe for her auntie's beloved bean salad, just

  4. 1 stalk of celery chopped
  5. 2 tablespoons dill pickle relish (you can use sweet-pickle relish instead if you like it better)

Mix together in a bowl, your chopped onion, chopped celery, pickle relish, garlic powder, and celery salt:

Hard boil an egg and after it is finished chop it up and put in the bowl with onion/relish mixture. Next open the cans of beans and thoroughly rinse and dry. (This is very important! If you don't do this you will end up with a soupy bean mess — trust me I know :oops: )

My son likes to pour salad dressing on these beans for a snack. Your recipe looks much more appealing. So, I'm trying yet another of your recipes! Thanks to you and audreystar!

I eat bean salad with vinaigrette on it all the time. I never thought about a mayo based bean salad. Hmmm. Maybe! I love the "nayonaise" made from canola. If anyone wants a delicious but healthier alternative to mayonnaise, I'd highly recommend it.
