Crazy Good Bean Salad

A combo of simple ingredients when combined equal a salad so good, it's crazy!

This salad is crazy. A crazy bunch of ingredients that seem random but when tossed together just work – and work so good it’s crazy! You can add a cooked grain like quinoa, farro, rice or even pasta. I love it alone as a simple side dish to chicken, fish or tofu. It’s gets better the longer it sits so try to make a few hours or even a day ahead of time.
