How to Make a Mean Bean Salad

Way back when I was in high school, I worked for KFC and they used to have the most delicious bean salad in the world.

Sadly they don’t sell it anymore, but I’ve always wanted to learn how to make bean salad and  this version is even fresher, healthier and lighter than the bean salad I used to know and love.

Bean Salad is a great accompaniment for a barbecue – and the big advantage this salad has on others, is that it doesn’t ‘wilt’ – so you can serve it straight on top of a steak or baked piece of chicken!
