This salad is a cinch to put together once you have some cooked kidney beans and corn on hand.

The zippy zesty  basil cilantro dressing is a keeper, I promise! You can use it as a dipping sauce, or a marinade for your meats, fish, paneer and tofu. Making your own vinaigrettes is not only an easy task, but these are indeed so much healthier than the store-bought variety. Why deal with all the extra sugar/salt and preservatives when you really don’t need to!
