This recipe is so good! Our small oven unfortunately does not have enough space for all the beans, so we grilled half of them on a griddle. The dressing is very rich in flavour and the only tweak I would make is to add a piece of chilli to it, as the spicy kick would work really well. I might also alter the balance between chickpeas and beans more in favour of the beans. But even without these modifications, this is a very, very good dish. And a breeze to make as well!

Fantastic salad, have made it many times, especially when friends over for a BBQ, it's always the one everyone comments on. Also great the next day if by chance there are leftovers!!

I was really pleasantly surprised with this salad. Loved the beans roasted - never cooked them like this before and the dressing had so much flavour. I didn't have any sherry vinegar so used red wine vinegar.
Will definately be making this again.

really delicious, easy & quick - wasn't sure about the roasted beans, but they were delicious (I used frozen beans). Didn't have any sherry vinegar, so used some spiced cherry vinegar - dressing was superb.

Exploding with flavour - absolutely delicious! Added half a tsp of sugar and a little crushed garlic to the sun dried tomatoes for extra kick. Amazing recipe!

Cooked the beans exactly as the recipe - delicious; a new experience.

Living on my own, adjusting the recipe was easy, except trying to scale the dressing down to a ½ size, I thought it a little dry, so let it down with a drop of water. This worked well.

Overall, superb. It will definitely feature again

This was really lovely - light and tasty. I made it slightly differently to the recipe. I boiled the green beans, drained then stirred the chickpeas in. After making the dressing, I stirred this in over a low heat along with the feta. Absolutely lovely. One for the binder!

WOWZERS!!! This salad is completely delicious. I used to make a sauce similar to this for a morrocan chicken recipe, which had a teaspoon of sugar added, so I put about 1/2 a tsp of sugar in the blender with this recipe also. I was making it in a bit of a rush so couldn't be bother to put the beans in the oven and just blanched and refreshed them on the hob instead. Will definitely do again!!

WOW! This is delicious - simple to make, and the roasted peppers and sun dried tomato combo, provides a real depth of flavour. I'm sure this is going to be a new picnic/BBQ salad favourite!
