This classic Tuscan salad uses cannellini beans, red kidney beans and fresh green beans. Combinations of different beans can be used.
A good source of fibre, protein, vitamin B6 and vitamin C and containing many important minerals, these beans have a full flavour that complements fresh green beans.
• Add 1 small green or red capsicum, finely diced. Add a generous pinch of sugar to the oil, lemon juice and garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine.
• Use 1 tin (400g) borlotti beans, rinsed and drained, in place of fresh green beans. Add 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander.
