Easy nutritious bean salad

This bean salad takes minutes to throw together and is packed full of protein, fibre and loads of nutrients. Its one of my favourite lunches served on top of a mixed salad with a dollop of hummus on top. This will make about 4 servings and it comes in at around 350 calories per serving.


For the salad

1 400g can of cannellini beans

1 packet of ready to eat Puy lentils (I use the Merchant packets)

1 small red onion diced

100g of cucumber diced

one yellow pepper diced

a handful of parsley chopped

100g of cooked or tinned sweetcorn

2 tbsp of capers

For the dressing:

2 tbsp of olive oil

1 tbsp of white wine vinegar

1 tsp of Dijon mustard


Cook the beans as per the instructions on the tin (or better still, buy dry beans and soak and then cook them). Cook the Puy lentils as per the packet instructions. Mix all of the salad ingredients in a bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients together and then pour over the dressing and stir everything together.
