This Red Beans Potato Salad is made without using any OIL. Red Kidney Beans / Rajma have excellent health benefits. Some of them are⇒⇒ Lowers cholesterol, high dietary fibre, improves memory, boosts energy, Anti-oxidant properties, powerhouse of proteins, natural detoxifier, prevents hypertension (info from internet).

During weekends, for dinner I prefer to make salads. Weekends lunch is always an elaborated brunch at my home, and so we feel full even until 7PM. For such scenes I prefer to make salad, which are quite easy to make and healthy to eat. This salad recipe is just a makeover recipe from my own ideas. But, yes it tasted pretty well, why will it not be, after adding so many healthy and flavourful ingredients. 🙂

Tips:

  • Instead of sprouts you can use just red kidney beans / rajma in this recipe.
  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • You can replace potatoes with any other vegetable or eliminate them.
  • I did not use Oil in this recipe, hence gave it as an optional ingredient.
  • This is quite a filling salad recipe, very much suitable as a starter for any party, platter.
  • This salad can be chilled in refrigerator and served, especially in summers.
  • It stays good upto a week when refrigerated.

Result:

  • The texture of this salad is soft and chewy, while the taste is fabulous.
  • This salad is so filling that we didn’t feel like having anything else for our dinner.
  • My kids loved it as much as we did.
