Kidney Bean Salad

It is such a beautiful day here…the temps are almost 50 and the sun is shining. The weather actually got me in the grilling mood today. Anyway, whenever we grill out (OK not all the time, but most of the time) Josh asks for kidney bean salad. I roll my eyes, but I make it anyway. I change it up all the time and I have actually made it to where I’ll eat more than one serving! I added a little dijon mustard and some Borsari seasoning. (The Borsari seasoning can be found at www.kingarthurflour.com.) I hope you try this salad and enjoy it! I sure know I have. 🙂

Makes: 4 servings

Here’s what you’ll need:
