Chickpea & Kidney Bean Salad

Chickpea & Kidney Bean Salad
“Food is the most primitive form of comfort” — Sheilah Garaham

I love food, it’s as simple as that and good for me, my family loves to try new recipes every now and then. There are days when we resort to simple comfort foods and this salad is as simple as can be. I make this salad very often but with different dressings and I can guarantee this salad goes with any type of dressing. They don’t need anything fancy a simple oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper will also make them so delicious to taste.

I mixed the beans with the dressing as I didn’t have bell pepper and I didn’t want the raw onion taste. Feel free to add red bell pepper and chopped onions to the recipe, they do taste yummy with them. I used some crushed ginger in the dressing and many don’t like the taste of ginger due to its strong taste, so if you are one of them then don’t add ginger to the dressing. I’ve also replaced orange juice in the dressing to carrot juice and it was perfect. This salad is perfect for potluck or any festive setting. Enjoy!!!
