Marinated Kidney Beans

Try this one. Very easy and great for spicing up any green salad and adding a little fiber and protein.

1 can kidney beans, rinsed well
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 - 2 TBS olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
dried or fresh parsley to taste (optional)

Toss all together, cover and let sit in refrigerator for an hour before serving.

Note: If I have any leftover green beans or sliced onion laying around, I add them too. If feeling really adventurous, I add a splash or two of red wine vinegar.. : )

I love to use kidney beans, garbanzo beans and cut green beans in a three bean salad with onion slices and a vinegar/sugar dressing.
