Lobio: Red Kidney Bean Salad

Lobio is from the Caucasus (Georgia, Azerbaijan..) and it can be done in many different ways. This following recipe is one that I have adapted from one that I found posted on a Georgian food blog a few years ago. I've searched in vain for the original.

Lobio: Red Kidney Bean Salad
makes about 2 cups

1 L clove garlic, crushed
1/2 M red onion, finely diced
1/2 bunch coriander leaves, chopped
1 red bird's eye chili, de-seeded & finely chopped
50g/1/2 cup walnuts, almost ground
40ml/2 tbsp white vinegar (distilled malt vinegar)
20ml/1 tbsp neutral vegetable oil
425g can red kidney beans, drained

Whisk all except beans in a bowl.
Add beans, mix well.
Season to taste.

As with generally all bean salads this tastes better if you let it sit in the fridge for a few hours, or even better over night.
