A delicious and nutritious combination in Apple Kidney Bean Salad makes this an easy lunch dish or side salad for dinner. This would go well with Garlic Bean Sprout Beef Burgers or cold roast beef at a picnic.
Either way, the crunch of the fresh delicious apples and celery will soon be a favorite. Serve on a bed of lettuce or finely sliced green cabbage to help offset the bite of the hot sauce.
Red kidney beans are a Superfood, some say even better than black beans.
They are good for you in so many ways that you’ll want to find plenty of times to serve this low cost and easy to prepare salad.
Apple Kidney Bean Salad
1 can (16oz) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 red delicious apples, cored and chopped
¼ cup green onions, finely chopped
¼ cup celery stalks, finely chopped
¼ cup mild green chillies, finely chopped
1 ½ tbsp white wine vinegar
1 ½ tbsp vegetable oil
½ tsp salt
Dash of hot sauce (if you like it hot!)
1. In a big bowl, mix together the chopped apples, green onion, celery, chillies and beans.
2. In a separate small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients to make a dressing and pour over the bean and apple mixture.
3. Cover and chill for about an hour before serving as a light lunch or as a side dish to BBQ chicken.
Best Pennywise Tip: Plan ahead and start with dried red kidney beans for a big price saving. One good idea is to buy 2 or 3 packages of the dried kidney beans (and other dried beans, too); cook them then freeze in suitable containers so they are ready ahead of time. Freeze them in amounts you are likely to use – I find 2 or 4 cup portions work best.
Not only do you save money but there are no empty tin cans to recycle. If you buy them in a bulk food store, you need to put them in a plastic bag but you can re-use it the next time you go bulk food buying.
Red kidney beans are nutritious, low cost and full of protein and fiber. Some sources are now saying that red kidney beans are even better for you than black beans.
