I don't eat lettuce and am always struggling to find salads without it. This one hit the spot and is so easy to make! Not a lettuce leaf in sight and super healthy. Will be making again and again.

I did'nt have any red wine vinagar so i used extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinagar it still tasted great and the whole family loved it.

Opening a can of beans, cutting up some tomatoes and an onion and pouring on a salad dressing. Not really a "recipe" is it?

I made this and it was a very simple, lovely lunch. I devided it between four containers and kept them in the fridge and that was practically my lunches for the week sorted! Added a trickle of good olive oil and replaced the red wine with balsamic, added some black olives and ate them in pitta bread

Very tasty and quick to prepare. I tweaked the quantities a little: 1 can of beans between the two of us and a few more cherry tomatoes. I also added some cucumber. Great for putting in a lunchbox for work.
