Ingredients
  • 450 g Cannellini beans drained & rinsed drained & rinsed
  • 1/2 Lemon both zest & juice,
  • 1 tsp Rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 Red chilli finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli flakes/Pul Biber
  • 5 Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 packet Feta cheese broken into cubes or chunks.
Instructions
  1. Tip the cannellini beans into a salad bowl,

  2. Combine all the remaining ingredients (apart from the Feta cheese) into a bowl and mix them together to form the salad dressing,

  3. Pour over the cannellini beans and stir well to coat the beans,

  4. If possible, let the salad marinate for at least 30 minutes for the flavours to infuse. I left my salad to marinate for 6 hours and the flavour was superb,

  5. Add the crumbled/cubed Feat to the salad and serve either on it's own or with an accompaniment of your choice.

Recipe Notes

This salad improves with a little time left to marinade in the fridge before serving. The flavours will become more pronounced and intense.
