Here's a new one I found this week looking through a cookbook of quick and healthy meals. Hope you enjoy it!
Chilled Red Beans and Rice
1/4 cup Italian dressing
3 Tbs water
2 Tbs white vinegar
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp ground red pepper

1/8 tsp ground pepper
1 (15 oz.) can red kidney beans, drained
1 cup cooked long-grain rice (cooked without salt), chilled
1 cup sliced celery
3/4 cup chopped onion

Combine the first 7 ingredients, mix well and chill. (Preferably in a jar sealed tight, shaken vigorously!)
Combine dressing mixture, kidney beans and next 4 ingredients in a bowl; toss well.
Cover and chill.
