Kidney Bean Salad

My Favorite Vegan Kidney Bean Salad in Just 5 Minutes!

Jump to Recipe

Got a couple of cans of beans, a couple of cans of corn, and some basic veggies?? Welp, then you are all set to make my favorite vegan kidney bean salad in under 5 minutes!

When I first made this, I was in shock that just a couple of lemons and simple seasonings could tie this entire recipe together. I like to eat it as is for a light spring/summer salad, paired with a baked potato and avocado for a fantastic lunch, or wrapped up with lots of delicious greens! Such a versatile recipe that can be used all year long and with the absolute basic ingredients.

Any veggies work for this. You can add in diced broccoli, cauliflower, and cucumber if you wish!
