To prepare dried beans: Drain and rinse the soaked beans. In a large pot, add the beans and cover with 5 cm cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, partially covered, gently stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, but still hold their shape. This will take 60-90 minutes depending on how long the beans were soaked. Drain any excess water and allow the beans to cool down before using in the salad.
