The more you eat, the more you….. yes, yes, we all remember the song from childhood! This is just a very very quick post on a delicious lunch, containing beans – obviously!
This is a product of what I call “desperation cooking” – I hadn’t been food shopping for a while and needed to make something for lunch which was relatively healthy but also quick, easy and tasty.
This bean salad did meet all three goals, I think that the next time I make it I’ll throw in a bit of feta too to give it a bit of extra salty depth of flavour. Otherwise you could also maybe throw in some anchovies?
Beware though, the onion does add a strong flavour to it, so just make sure you have some added mints ready to take the edge off afterwards!
Would be very good as a side dish to accompany a nice rare steak!
