1 (15.25 ounce) can
kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh parsley
finely chopped onion
ground black pepper
I made this with Splenda instead of sugar and added 1/2 cup each: chopped sweet red pepper and chopped green onion. We had it with Calhoun's pork BBQ for a 4th of July picnic. Wow! It was so good and crunchy! Perfect with the BBQ. A 5-star hit for sure!
Would give this 6 *'s if I could. Very fresh. Lots of chopping, but worth it. I'm not very good at measuring "cups" of vegetables--for this recipe I used 1 head of cabbage, 1 small bunch of celery, and 1/2 an onion. We're not big fans of raw onion, so reserved a little bit of bacon grease to cook the onion prior to combining with other ingredients (after draining well). This recipe is a great way to deliciously add cabbage to your diet!!
This was a hit at the last family BBQ!
I liked the bacon flavor and the vinagrette was tasty, but the appearance wasn't very appealing.
It's basically cole slaw with bacon and kidney beans. The bacon was an asset but I didn't care for the kidney beans in it.
good quick salad that's good for you and filling
VERY Good. I was looking for something to help use up my left over shredded cabbage, and man this was well worth it. They were out of parsley at the store (I know, like you would expect the store to be out of parsley) so I used cilantro instead, which also gave it a nice flavor! Thanks so much, I will munch on this salad for the next few days!
We really like the flavors in this salad. Nice blend of tangy and savory.
This is a beautiful, easy refreshing salad.
It was easy to execute.
I used red and white kideney beans for visual interest.
