This classic 5-bean salad is a great addition to any feast. It is filled with proteins from the different kind of beans and I love the combination of soft, boiled beans and the crunchy veggies along with the fresh herbs. Use either canned beans or soak overnight and boil the dried beans a few hours before making the salad.
