Simple bean salad recipe

This bean dish is as easy as it is tasty

For speed and ease use jarred beans, but you can always soak and cook your own.

  • 1 jar of red kidney beans
  • 1 jar of white beans
  • 1/2 cucumber cut into cubes
  • 1/2 red onion cut into small dice
  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Drain and rinse the beans well. Make the dressing by whisking the mustard, honey, lemon juice and oil together. Combine everything in a bowl and dress with vinaigrette. You can also add some spinach or rocket.
