Moroccan Bean Salad

A light yet nourishing salad, ideal for mid-week eating. A few toasted almonds or walnuts would be delicious tumbled through before eating too.

  • 1 green capsicum, deseeded and diced
  • 2 well-rinsed 300 gram cans chickpeas

  • 12 juicy black olives
  • 2 handfuls chopped flat leaf parsley

Paprika Dressing

  1. Trim and halve carrots. Cook in boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes until tender crisp. Drain well and refresh in ice-cold water.
  2. Cook green beans the same way as the carrots.
  3. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and cook ginger and green pepper until fragrant.
  4. Toss together the carrots, beans, ginger and pepper with chickpeas, whole cumin seeds, black olives and chopped flat leaf parsley.

Cooks Tips

- I like this salad to be well dressing with plenty of juice to soak up with warm bread. For those wanting less dressing, prepare only half the recipe.
