Great with cold roast meat or tuna steak. You could also use cannellini or haricot beans to make this salad, if that’s what you’ve got in your cupboard.


  1. Heat the oil in a small frying pan, then soften the garlic for 1 min. Tip in the beans and briefly warm in the garlicky oil. Turn off the heat, then stir in the lemon zest and juice, the parsley and some seasoning. Serve warm.
