    Wildflour's Note:

    Brown Beans, called "ful medames" are widely used in the Mid-East. (Kidney Beans are an excellent substitute.) An unusual combination of flavors, this beats the regular ol' picnic bean salad hands down! My sister gave me this recipe, and I can't thank her enough! :)

    1. 1
      If using dried/soaked beans, place in a saucepan, cover with water and boil 10 minutes, then proceed. If using canned kidney beans, place in a saucepan, cover with water, and add thyme, bay, and onion. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer 10-15 minutes for canned, one hour for dried.
    2. 2
      Drain and discard the herbs and onion. Chill beans while you mix together remaining ingredients ("dressing"), except the egg and pickle.
    3. 3
      Stir "dressing", and pour over beans and toss lightly to coat.
    4. 4
      Gently fold in eggs and pickle, then serve.
    5. 5
      *We chilled this salad an hour more, then served.

      Thanks for a trip down memory lane. I lived in the Middle East and this dish is authentic in taste and presentation. I made it as written, but did not discard the onion in the cooking liquid. No need to waste good onion, so I chopped it in, too. I used tinned ful and recommend that you do not substitute with other beans unless you absolutely have to. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.
