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.. : )
