  • 1

    Pick a medium sieve and drain the chick peas properly. Now, rinse them under cold water and drain again. Place the chick peas in a large serving or salad bowl.

  • 2

    Drain and rinse the borlotti beans, flageolet beans, red kidney beans, and sweet corn in the same manner and place them in the bowl as well.

  • 3

    Add in one finely diced red chili, 1 tablespoon of roughly chopped fresh mint and 3 of nicely chopped spring onions. Blend the beans mixture until mix up finely.

  • 4

    Pour in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and the same quantity of 1 olive oil. Toss gently until the bean mixture coats properly.

  • 5

    Sprinkle some salt and ground black pepper all over the salad, mix lightly and cover the bowl completely.

  • 6

    Set your Spicy Bean Salad aside or place in refrigerator for about an hour until the beans properly absorb the lemon juice and the olive oil.

  • 7

    Unseal the salad at the end of marinating, toss gently and serve immediately.

    Note: Marinating can take enough of your time; therefore it is better to make this salad ahead of serving and to leave it overnight to marinate thoroughly.
