Red Kidney Bean and Mango Salad
This tropical salad is wonderful as an accompaniment to a braai or even a casual weeknight’s supper’s protein.
The great thing about this salad is that it has both edamame beans and red kidney beans, which are fantastic plant-based protein sources. This makes the salad very versatile as it can be eaten as a meal on its own, when its to hot to get in the kitchen, or it serves well as a vegetarian alternative.
I like to pair this dish with my chimichurri chicken breasts, as the flavours go well together.

1 Boil the corn for 10 minutes and slice it off the cob into a large salad bowl.
2 Cut the peppers, mango and avocado into cubes and add it to the salad bowl.
3 Slice the Rosa tomatoes in half lengthways, adding them to the salad.
4 Pour the red kidney beans into a sieve and strain the excess fluid. Add the beans into the salad bowl.
5 Drizzle the avocado oil, rice wine vinegar and juice of 1 lime over the salad. Season with salt and pepper.
6 Sprinkle freshly chopped mint over the top of the salad and gently mix all the ingredients together.
