I prepared a salad for side dish, It is delicious, easy to prepare and healthy. I used red kidney bean with bean sprout together and roasted-canned red bell pepper. My version is dressed with olive oil, lemon juice and garlic that perfectly complements the natural flavours of the beans, bean sprouts, red pepper and corn. This Red Kidney Bean with Bean Sprout salad recipe makes a excellent low calorie side dish for lunch or dinner.

Red peppers are an excellent source of Vitamin C. Red kidney bean and bean sprouts have protein, B vitamins (especially folic acid and vitamin B1), Calcium, Iron and fiber. Soluble fiber can significantly lower cholesterol levels and blood sugar. Corn contains B vitamins,folate Vitamin C,  protein, fiber and It is also contains plenty of carbohydrates.
