Bean Queen Salad

The other day I went out for lunch with my mum and we had some delicious salads. As I am always looking for new ideas to eat healthily, I noted down the ingredients and yesterday I made my own version of the two salads! This one has kidney beans, chick peas and cannellini beans, but you could change this bean combo to suit you. I used my mean green dressing to dress it.

Firstly, I emptied my can of bean mix and my can of kidney beans into a bowl.

In the original salad it had bits of mandolin(ed) zucchini. I don’t have a mandolin but I do have a Betti Bossi Veggie Twister and this worked perfectly! I just had to chop up the zucchini after I twisted it.

I then finely chopped some red onion, diced yellow pepper and added the dressing to the zucchini and beans in a big bowl.
