I grew up with this kidney bean salad; it was especially refreshing in the summer, but it works well as a winter salad as well. For this recipe, you’ll need kidney beans, onions, celery,vinegar, sugar, and a mayonnaise-based dressing. Mix it up a few hours or a day before to allow the flavor to seep through the beans. Be sure to drain the kidney beans as the recipe suggests!
