Rice Bean Salad

"The Farm Journal Country Cookbooksays that “the excellence of this take-along salad was a nice surprise in our Test Kitchens.”  We agree.    Simple and delicious, we enjoyed it with fresh homemade yeast rolls as our lunchtime main dish.
I used dill pickle relish for the pickles; use your favorite.  I drained and rinsed the beans and cooked an extra egg to use as a garnish.  A generous 1/3 cup of dry rice makes 1 cup cooked.
