Kidney Bean Salad with Apple, Cheddar and Bacon

I love beans and eat them several times a week, so I'm always interested in trying something new with them. I liked that this Kidney Bean Salad with Apple, Cheddar and Bacon could be a complete meal served over lettuce or used as side salad. All of the flavors play well together and it's nice and crunchy with the apple and celery. Don't hesitate to give this different salad a try folks, it will be especially nice as the weather gets warmer:@)
This is best eaten the day it's made.

Kidney Bean Salad with Apple, Cheddar and Bacon-from The Iowa Housewife-Kidney Bean Bowl
14.5 oz can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 C celery, sliced
1/4 C onion, diced-you might want to cut back, you know your crowd
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tblsp mayonnaise
1 large apple, diced, don't peel
1/3 C cheddar cheese, diced
4 slices bacon, crisp and crumbled-um, it's ok if only three make it to the salad...
  1. Mix beans, celery, onion, salt and mayo. Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
  2. Mix in the apple, cheddar and bacon, reserving a little bacon to sprinkle on top.
  3. Serve over lettuce if desired.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
