Serves 2-3 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time


2 spring onions
1 big tomatoe or 1 and a half
1/4 cucumber
1/2 red bell pepper or one small one
1 tin makreles in oil (can be substituded with tuna)
1 half tin cannelli beans
30 pecan nuts
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
a pinch of maldon salt
a few dashes of red tabasco

Chop veggies very finely like in small cubes.

Drain and wash beans in a cholander

Drain makreles of the oil

Squeeze the lemon and measure 3 tbsp to the veggies in a bowl. Add the rest into a big glass and fill it up with sparking water.

Combine and enjoy with the glass of lemon water.

Also good to combine is home made croutons

Take half a baguette, may be old and dry. Cut into slices, cut each slice into 4 pieces, put olive oil in a pan, be rather generous, almost a pan-bottom fill, fry on medium heat. Add a few herbs like 2 stalks of rosemarin and a few leaves of fresh oregano ca same quantity of each herb.

Toss generously so that bread will soak up and get colour on each side.

Let cool for a while and serve with this salad or any other

I have a salad mania these days, I just love the fresh veggies. I was checking what I have in my storage of food and all and then with the influence of the Tabouleh I also posted earlier today and my memory of a Gazpacho salad I got a few years ago, (and unfortunately lost the recipie) I came up with this great dish.
