Green bean salad

A New Zealand classic that hasn't gone out of fashion. Great for summer, but just as good using frozen beans any other time.
  • 2 cups sliced green beans
  • 1 can 4 bean mix, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 capsicum, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  1. 1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and cook the green beans for 2 minutes.
  2. 2. Drain and cool under cold running water, set aside.
  3. 3. In a large salad bowl, mix together the canned mixed beans, chickpeas, capsicum, red onion, parsley and green beans, vinegar and oil.
  4. 4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
