by Utokia Langley mandarin orange, red beans and snow peas

Initially I thought this combo couldn’t taste that good!  BUT BABY OH BABY, the flavor was intense, I LOVED LOVE LOVED It!!!  Not only was this salad delicious, it is healthy to boot!  Mandarin oranges provide vitamin C, A, B and folic acid, so good for you!  Red beans contain fiber and antioxidants, another good for you food!  And snow peas are a good source for magnesium, iron, folate and thiamin, so healthy!  I made this salad for my Mother and her friends.  When they saw it they all said, we want some meat!  I just laughed and said taste it!  And honey when they did they were fighting over who’d get the last bowl!  Try this salad you will NOT regret it!  And for my non-meat eaters, well this is a sure fire win for you!

These are the best beans! I really love these beans. It makes me feel nostalgic since it’s the kind of beans my nana once made for us when we were young kids. I will try to make this recipe tonight for my kids. Thanks for sharing!
