I like easy recipes and this one only takes the time it takes to cook the potatoes. There was plenty over so had it cold for the next few days but remember to remove from the fridge about half an hour before you want to eat. Would be suitable for lunch boxes and picnics.

Delicious! I made this without the potatoes and halved the dressing ingredients. Highly nutritious and yummy.

So easy and delicious to make, I usually uses black eyed beans instead of cannellini, and add green beans. Great for trying to include your 5 a day.

Lovely versatile recipe for a midweek lunch which can easily be adapted to use up leftover veg. I added avocado and celery to mine which worked well.

Forgot to mention - i actually used butter beans and red kidney beans instead of cannellini beans as that was what was in my storecupboard!

It is perfect for lunch with a friend. So easy, looked fantastic and tasted great too. I didn't serve with potaoes just some warm crusty bread on the side. Brilliant!

Really simple way to dress up a tin of tuna

This is really simple but tasty - I find the chopped garlic in the dressing makes all the difference to the flavour.
