Ingredients
  • 1 tin cannellini beans (400 g, 13 oz)
  • 1 tin kidney beans (400 g, 13 oz)
  • 3 tomatoes
  • ½ English cucumber
  • 2 spring onions
For the dressing
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/9 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Add the beans to a colander and rinse under cold water.

  2. Transfer them to a bowl.

  3. Chop the onions, cucumber and tomatoes, and add them to the beans.

  4. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients together and give it a good stir.

  5. Pour the dressing over the salad, and mix well.

Recipe Notes

I used spring onions as they are not as pungent, but regular or red onions can be used too, if you don't mind a sharper touch.

Other veggies that would work well here are sweetcorn, radishes, avocadoes, olives, green beans and peas, or green salad chopped well.

Feta cheese would be another great addition.
