Green bean salad

During the summer when the beans are in full production, it’s good to try out new recipes as you can have too much of the same thing. This was a tweaked recipe. You can either slice the beans by hand or Lakeland sell a handy Krisk bean slicer which both strings and slices the beans in a fraction of the time.

handful green beans, sliced lengthways
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 heaped teaspoon grain mustard
lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
pinch of chilli powder
salt and pepper


Cook the beans in boiling water for 3 minutes and drain. Mix with onion, squeeze of lemon juice, mustard, chilli powder, olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
