Kidney Bean, Celery, Tomato and Parsley Salad

Kidney Bean, Celery, Tomato and Parsley Salad

A delightful light salad, which is packed with tons of protein. Simple to make with few ingredients. Spice it up with your favorite herbs and toppings. I serve my salad with fresh avocado, salsa, and hummus. Check out my recipes listed below.

Healthy Tip: Buy organic or shop at a local farmers markets to get the best quality ingredients. Using fresh herbs over dried herbs are better for bringing out the refreshing aroma and flavors.
