three-bean-saladThis is the bean salad for people who don’t like bean salad, and it is a big hit with my family and friends.

Ingredients 

1 can each of chickpeas, red kidney beans, cannellini beans and corn kernals.

250 grams steamed and cooled green beans                                      3 spring onions, sliced

1 red capsium, chopped                                                                           3 sticks celery, chopped

1/4 cup each of mint leaves and parsley, chopped                            6 gherkins, chopped

Method – Drain and rinse legumes and corn. Put it all in a large bowl and mix together.

For the dressing mix together 1/2 cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, 1 clove of freshly crushed garlic, 1 tablespoon of wholegrain mustard and a small squeeze of lemon juice and pour over salad.

This keeps well in the fridge so you can make it a few hours ahead of time if need be.
