Fine like my mum’s fine bean summer salad

My mum's fine bean summer salad


Often the simplest recipes are the most delicious and nutritious. This is a summer salad my mum used to make me when I was little and to this day I love it, so I thought I’d share it with you.


Ingredients ( for 2-3 people)

200grms organic fine beans, cut in half and lightly boiled or steamed for 5 minutes

2 medium sized organic tomatoes, cut into quarters

3-4 organic scallions, finely chopped

4 organic eggs, boiled for 5 minutes

Extra virgin olive oil, red wine or balsamic vinegar, salt, ground black pepper, wholegrain honey mustard (optional)



After the fine beans are cooked, cool them down with cold water so they keep their vivid green colour.Then using a sieve get rid of any extra water. Put the beans in a big salad bowl.

Take the shell off the eggs, break them roughly in to pieces and add to the bowl.

Add the tomatoes and the scallions.

Add about two to three tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of vinegar (add more if you like it more vinegary), salt and pepper to taste, and a tablespoon of mustard.

Mix it all together, et voila!

Eat this and you’ll look and feel fine, like this fine bean summer salad.

Thanks mum!
