Easy Kidney Bean Salad by Joyce Lavene
Kidney Bean Salad - Yum!
This isn't a typical summer salad. It doesn't have your usual summer foods in it. But it's quick and easy to make. It travels well for picnics and parties and there is absolutely no cooking involved. Always a plus!
It's probably good for you too, but I don't want to get into that.
I'm posting this today because it is one of my husband's favorite dishes (Happy Father's Day, Jim). His mother made this for him when he was a kid. She was a great cook - in a way that I will never be - because she took long hours putting everything together just so.
That's not me!
But if you're looking for something cool and easy that doesn't have to be cooked - kidney bean salad could be for you!
1 can kidney beans - drained
2 cups of chopped cabbage - as you would for coleslaw
1/2 cup vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Add the cabbage to the kidney beans and mix thoroughly. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper and mix again.
