Amy's Kidney Bean Salad

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"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 make this a couple of times a month! We love it - I only use 1 tbsp of milk and use 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp white vinegar. I also omit the peppers and egg. Make sure beans are d...

I just made this but knew I would make a couple of changes since I was trying to recreate a specific kidney bean salad from a small delicatessen near our IL home. I omitted the boiled egg and a...

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