When you are learning how to make a kidney bean salad recipes, there are many different types of kidney beans to chose from and in many colors. Actually all the oval “kidney shape” beans and peas (like black eyed peas) are classified as kidney beans. Quite often I very successfully interchange or mix these in my recipes; it depends on your taste.
Here in the United States only a specific type is referred to as kidney beans; those that are kidney shaped, red, dark red or white. In the grocery stores, you will find all the “labeled” kidney beans to be of reddish coloring. They are usually referred to as light, dark or red. To me these are all about the same in taste and are great when learning how to make kidney bean salads.
You can purchase these beans in cans on the grocery shelf or they also come dried in bags. I purchase the dried ones and cook them myself. They are so much cheaper this way and I think they taste better. If I cook a large pot, I will divide them in small containers and place in the freezer for easy use in bean salads.
When you have learned to make kidney bean salad you will see it can be made up of mostly kidney beans or combined with other beans. The beans are usually blended with a few to a lot of other vegetables and other ingredients to produce delicious flavors. Spices and dressings, either of the creamy versions or vinegar and oil, add a lot of seasoning to these salads.
