Bean Salad, is the recipe I'm going to show today. I learned it off my Mom. It was one of her favourites and very easy and fast to make. Also my daughter and husband enjoy it as well.
Here I used white kidney beans but I have also used chickpeas as well which comes out the same and if you want you can add some chopped up cucumber or even add 1 garlic clove minced. All optional and what you prefer.
1 can white kidney beans OR 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tomato, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
3 Tbsp. flat leaf parsley, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3 Tbsp. Olive oil
In a bowl put rinsed and drained beans and set aside.
Add chopped tomato, onion, cucumber and parsley. Mix well till combined.
Mix Olive oil and lemon juice together and pour over above salad and mix well.
Ready to eat or make a couple of hours before and refrigerate.
