Mixed Bean Salad GF SCD

I'm always making bean salads, not only are they extremely quick and easy to assemble, they're also full of plant protein and add fibre, B vitamins, iron, folate, potassium, magnesium as well as health promoting phytonutrients to the meal.

Mixed Bean Salad GF SCD

250g cooked mixed beans
½ - 1 red chilli finely chopped
½ sweet red pepper
1 heaped tblsp chopped fresh mint
2 - 3 heaped tblsps chopped fresh coriander &/or parsley
basic salad dressing
freshly ground sea salt and black pepper

Tip the cooked beans into a bowl.

Finely chop the chilli pepper and sweet red pepper.

Tip in the chopped chilli pepper and fresh herbs.  Grind plenty of black pepper and sea salt over the top and pour in the salad dressing. Stir gently.

Lay the sliced sweet red pepper over the top.

Cover and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
