Cucumber Mango and Kidney Bean Salad

Prepared a vibrant, hearty, low fat, high fibre salad using kidney beans and ripe mango for lunch today. Simple salad with the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors.


Quick Summer Meals ~ Spiced Kidney Bean Sandwich

Yesterday, we had Rajma Chawal and Pineapple Mint salad for lunch. I kept aside some cooked rajma (kidney beans) to prepare a salad. Today, I made a Mexican inspired kidney bean filling for sandwich. Lovely flavors and made for a filling meal with watermelon smoothie on a hot summer day.
