Ingredients

For the salad dressing

For the salad

  • 150 g (1 cup) cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 Tablespoon quick pickled onions
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 375 g (2 cups) cooked cannellini beans

Instructions

To make the salad dressing

  • Place the lemon juice and olive oil in a small jar with a lid.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Shake well to combine the ingredients, then set aside.

To assemble the salad

  • Place the tomatoes, parsley and pickled onions into a medium bowl.
  • Stir thoroughly to combine.
  • Add the beans to the bowl.
  • Pour over the dressing.
  • Gently toss everything together. Stir the salad gently as the beans will break up if you are too vigorous.
  • Serve & enjoy!

Notes

  1. Canned cannellini beans can be used in place of the cooked beans. 
  2. Replace the quick pickled onions with sliced spring onions (green onions) or finely sliced salad onion.
