My 10yr Nephew wanted to make dinner last night so he made this for himself and his 6 and 4 year old brothers. We served it with steamed cod. All tucked in

Great Salad, have used similiar textures in the classic American Three Bean Salad by Salad Days in Gurgaon.

I found the texture too mushy. It needs more crunch.

Really nice simple dish, the spring onion really elevates it. I used balsamic vinegar instead of white because that's what I had in my cupboard. And I used feta instead of goats cheese. Tastes great!

This was lovely and very simple to throw together. Doubled it up as I made it as a starter for book group and everyone enjoyed it.

Healthy lunch with energy :) I have prepared it with feta cheese. I have also replaced the sundried tomato paste with harissa sauce for a spicey edge - worked just well!

Zero fuss, very quick to make, and really tasty. I will definitely be making this again.

I tried it with canned tuna and feta cheese. One of my favourite salads in summer as I do it over and over again.

I made this to go with a BBQ recently and it was a big hit. You can vary the beans - butter beans work well - and feta cheese works well too.

This is great for a lunch or a light dinner. The Flavours are great. Try it with fresh fish.

A great store cupboard recipe, takes no time to assemble and any leftovers are great for lunch the next day.
