A quick and easy Citrus Kidney Bean Salad recipe with colourful veggies and tangy dressing. This is SO delicious!
This Citrus Kidney Bean Salad recipe was given to me by a friend I had in college. I put this together after my CT scan because I wanted to eat something high in antioxidants and citrus (for its antibacterial properties). What I ended up was a salad SO tasty, I just had to share it here.
It is the best bean salad I have ever tasted, and I love it because you can experiment with the ingredients and still have a mouth-watering side dish.
I’m sure that even the pickiest bean hating eater will love this dish. This is my new favorite and I can’t wait to go and make some more. The flavors are mellow, so this would be a good bean salad recipe for vegetarian kids.Try this Citrus Kidney Bean Salad recipe, I hope you like it!
