Red Bean Salad Recipe by Heghineh Simple red bean salad made with minimal ingredients, just the way I like it. In general I love dishes or salads that are made with only a few important components To me those are simpler, richer, tastier and easier to digest. This red bean salad was the first comfort food of Fall season. Originally my grandmother, from mom’s side, was from a beautiful Armenian region called Syuinq, town called Kapan. That region grew the best and the most delicious beans in Armenia. Every Fall , our relatives from Kapan would send us many goodies such as honey, walnuts, beans, my favorite sweet, white pomegranates and more. The first thing that my mom would make was the red bean salad. Those beans tasted so good, we’d eat them without any spice or special seasonings. I doubt they grow these beans here in US, as I’ve never seen nor tasted anything that good, as the ones from Kapan. To keep it short, let’s get to the preparation of the simplest red bean salad.
