Cannellini Bean Salad

The 2024 cookout season has officially started! What are you going to bring to the function? You're not grown enough to be tasked with making the potato salad or macaroni and cheese, but you've matured beyond bags of ice and cups.

This bean salad is easy to make, gets better the longer it sits, and will have the people asking you to bring "that salad you make" all summer long.
