Two Bean Champagne Salad

Fresh, cool salads were made for sultry, summer evenings.  Can you resist these gorgeous colors?  I can't!  The combinations of flavors will please your taste buds and compliment your summer grill.

1 can (15 oz.) Red Kidney Beans
1 can (15 oz.) Cannellini Beans
1/2 medium red onion sliced
1 tablespoon Cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
Splash of Champagne Vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Open both cans of beans place them in a colander.  Rinse the beans thoroughly under cool water and allow them to drain while you are slicing the onions and chopping the cilantro.

Place the drained beans in a bowl and toss with the onion, cilantro, lime juice and champagne vinegar.  Season to taste with salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

It's best to make this salad ahead of time to give all of the ingredients time to blend.   

Have a fantastic weekend!
