Avocado & Kidney Bean Salad

Submitted by: MEESHMANIA
Avocado & Kidney Bean Salad

Introduction

This is a yummy salad that is very flexible. Try subbing olive oil/balsamic vinegar as a dressing. Remember avocados are a little bit higher in the mono saturated (healthier) fats but also a great source of fiber! On the 2nd round of this salad, I tried adding dill and some rinsed, canned chicken. That was also good. Enjoy :)

*Rinsing beans, reduces sodium from what is listed

    Yum! I used chickpeas instead of kidney beans and only had one avocado and yes it definitely lends itself to playing. - 5/25/11

    Really like this, it's very filling! I've made it twice, once removing the black olives and the other removing black olives and avocado but adding corn and both times it turned out very well. - 10/7/13

  • I've had this twice now. First time for my daughter and her friends. They loved it! Again today. Only used one avocado. Seems like enough to me. May want to slightly reduce the mustard next time. You can add cumin and chili pepper for a spicy twist. - 8/23/14
