This is a simple 3 bean salad recipe which can be kept in the fridge for a few days. It can be constantly nibbled at or used as a salad as part of a full dinner. It’s quick, cheap, tasty and super healthy.
Step 1 – choose your beans – 3 tins/cans.
This is up to you, I like to go with 1 can of Cannellini Beans, 1 can of Butter Beans, 1 can of Farver Beans or Borlotti Beans. I find this combo looks nice and works well together as sizes and textures. (Use your preferred beans).
Drain the beans and rinse them if you wish. Put them in a mixing bowl with the oil, red wine vinegar, Oregano, salt and pepper.
Step 2 – chop the beetroot
Purple fingers time. Chop the beetroot into cubes about the size of a stock cube. Mix it in with the beans
Step 3 – Chop the tomatoes
Chop the tomatoes round the equator and mix them in with the beans and beetroot.
Step 4 – Add the rest
Chop the parsley/coriander and chop and de-seed the chilies, mix this in with the rest of the salad.
And that’s it! Simple, cheap, fast and tasty. It will keep for a few days in the fridge for snacks, and works perfectly well as a side dish or a main course.
