Amy's Kidney Bean Salad

Recipe by  

"This salad is a summertime pleaser. Every time I take it to a barbeque or gathering, everyone wants the recipe. Simple and quick to make with just a few ingredients. Everyone will love it! Can eat right away but the longer it sits in the refrigerator the better it tastes. I like to make it the day ahead of when I am wanting to serve. Enjoy!"

I made this because I remember my grandmother always having it at picnics. I took it to a pot luck and it was a rave !! I did substitute 1/2 of the mayo with greek plain yogurt.

This was so tasty and very quick & easy to prepare. Next time I'd probably do half yoghurt. This will be a winner for barbecues.

Good! I added a little sweet relish and left out the onion and it was delicious. Will definitely make again.

Very good recipe. Definitely make it ahead of time because it tastes much better after a day or two.

I found that making it per recipe it comes out quite bland for my tastebuds. However, I rated it 4 stars because it's a great combo that can easily be tweaked to greatness. I added 6 TBS of vinegar and 6 pks of nutrisweet, plus LOTs of salt and pepper. ( I added it 2TBS of vinegar at a time and kept tasting it until it tasted the way I thought was good) The basic recipe does have a hint of the sweet and sour, but it's very faint. I think using the greek yogurt with it's tanginess would help. I suggest making it with 1/2 yogurt and otherwise per recipe, then just tweek it until it has the taste you like. Certainly a healthy dish. Thank you for sharing it.
