Baked Bean Salad

Main Ingredients: dried beans, onion, garlic, carrots, Herbs, peppers, salad greens, potatoes, beets,

  • 1 lb of any dried bean

  • onion

  • garlic to taste

  • Dressing

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • � teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 3 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar

  • 2/3-cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

After soaking beans overnight for many years, I have found another method that I believe to be a tastier preparation called The Parsons Method:

  1. Put 1 pound of beans in a cast iron Dutch oven with 6 cups of water and 1-teaspoon salt.

  2. Use any seasoning you wish, onion, garlic, meat etc.

  3. Bring to boil on top of the stove and then cover and pop into a 350-degree oven until the beans are done.

  4. This can take from 1 hour to 2 hours, garbanzos or scarlet runners are the exception � they do need to be soaked before cooking.


Now that you�ve prepared those beans, be sure to prep everything that is available from your last CSA delivery for a delicious main event salad. Many things such as carrots, fresh herbs, peppers, onions, and salad greens can, of course be eaten raw. A few items such as beets or potatoes must be roasted prior to addition. Simple vinaigrette is the crowning jewel of the bean salad and should be applied and mixed with the other ingredients when the beans are still warm. This dish will never fail you. I swear, so help me God.

Bean and Vegetable Dressing:
Pound the garlic and salt into a paste and combine the mustard and vinegar. Whisk in the olive oil slowly and taste for seasoning.
