Just my favorite...many others enjoy it too. I made it up at a salad bar once, and it has been my favorite combination ever since. I never have cared for pickled beets, but in this salad they are delicious!

4Wash and core tomatoes, cut like orange slices (or however you prefer) into the salad bowl.
5Drain kidney beans, and pour into the salad bowl as well.
