Kidney Bean Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by BecR2400

A great make-ahead salad of kidney beans, cucumber, tomato and fresh mint in a tangy lemon-olive oil dressing. Great for picnics, potlucks, barbecues and summertime entertaining. From my mother.

This is a nice salad, and it seems to improve with a little time. (Today is the second day and I like it better than yesterday.)I can't really put my finger on why I prefer similar chickpea salads to this one, because I like kidney beans, too. I think it's just a matter of personal preference. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.
