Kidney Bean, Tomato & Red Onion Salad

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Soobeeoz

I saw this on Nigella Bites last night and made it for lunch today. We had it with crusty olive bread, but it would be nice as part of a buffet or picnic or as a potluck dish. It's very quick and easy to make, healthy and quite tasty. I used one can of beans, vine-ripened tomatoes, and everything else as listed in the recipe.

Delicious! I made the following alterations out of necessity: 1 can red kidney, 1 can garbanzo, 1 can great northern, 1 tomato - chunked, 3/4C sundried tomatoes bottled in olive oil. Because of the olive oil around the sundried tomatoes, I didn't add any of the extra olive oil. Yum! I've had several bites and will need to keep busy so that there is something left of the salad (and my appetite) by dinnertime.
