Kidney Bean Salad Recipe

This is a full-on kidney bean salad recipe with lots of beans, vegetables, eggs and pickles. This large dish is made with red and white kidney beans. Beans are a great source of protein and fiber but canned beans are quite high in sodium.

If using canned beans make sure to rinse them in a   colander with cold water to help cut down the sodium content.

Some brands are now offering low sodium and reduced sodium varieties of beans in this health-concious  society we are becoming.

An even healthier option is to use dried beans which  require overnight soaking.

This salad has lots of ingredients and could be a meal all by itself. Try it for lunch with some good bread to soak up the leftover dressing at the bottom of your plate-Delicious!
