Recipe by Jackie Noel Smith
"A simple and delicious combination of hard-cooked eggs, beans, onion, celery, and sweet pickle relish. A little mayo holds it all together."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (15 ounce) cans
kidney beans, drained
sweet pickle relish
salt and pepper to taste
This basic recipe has been a favorite in my family for fifty years. We omit the celery, and add diced pieces of cheese..Velveeta seems to be the most popular, cheddar came in a close second..
I did not care for this recipe. It sounded quick and easy and it was, but with dubious results. The mayo was all I could see and taste, there was really no other flavor in the "salad." I chilled it overnight hoping the mayonnaise flavor would subside compared to the relish and salt and pepper to no avail. 1/2 C. of mayo was a lot making it heavy and gooey. I won't be making this one again.
The old stand-by basic recipe, that you can easily play around with, that I've used for many years. Everyone in my family loves it!
Out of this world! I JUST made this - it hasn't even chilled yet and I can't keep my fork out of it. I couldn't decide between bean salad or corn salad, so I made this and added a 15oz can of drained sweet corn (I tripled the original recipie first - I had a 52oz can of kidney beans). Also subbed green onion for regular (had 'em), and chopped uo a dill pickle instead of sweet relish. I'm a goof about altering recipies (not always with good results), but this one surely doesn't need goofing with. Thank you sooooooo much for sharing this!! My new favorite salad!
This was a good salad, but it won't knock your socks off. I don't like sweet relish so used dill relish instead. I also used green onion instead of regular onion as I didn't want a strong raw onion taste. It was good, but I'll probably add more dill relish next time & maybe some dill weed & a sprinkling of parmasean cheese. It's a good salad, but needs a little something added for my taste.
Tastes delicious when chilled.
Very good! I left out the eggs and celery and added a jalepeno pepper. Everyone loved it. Will defitately make again. Great summer time salad!
