Kidney bean and raisin salad recipe
Healthy main meal salad
Kidney bean and raisin salad is delicious; the sweet raisins really complement the beans well. Raisins are a good source of iron and if you drink a glass of pure fruit juice with this (such as orange, cranberry or grapefruit) the vitamin C will help your body absorb the iron more efficiently.
