Red kidney bean and tomato salad

Let's start this weekend by posting a healthy recipe, as I probably will cook and bake something naughty later today. This vegan salad could be an idea for your lunch box next week. It's quite filling thanks to the beans and it tastes just as vibrant as it looks. This is quite a good type of salad I find and should make these more often.


1 can red kidney beans
200 g tomatoes
1 red romano pepper
1 small salad onion
Gem lettuce
Pumpkin seeds
Olive oil
Ground black pepper


Chop the tomatoes and peppers into smallish cubes.

Slice the salad onion finely and cut the gem lettuce into slices.

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and dress with olive oil. You can also add vinegar of your choice.

Season with salt and ground black pepper.

  1. This is def. a good salad for the lunch box. And like you, I think it the kind of salad we should really be making more often, esp. as many of us have tinned kidney beans in our store cupboard.

    1. Exactly, this is the type of salad that I'm planning more for the autumn. Keeps you full and happy at work.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
