Chilled white bean salad

A nutritious refreshing dish using a standard fridge/cupboard ingredients and sumac. It is widely eaten in Turke, an excellent side dish on a hot summer BBQ day. I have this a main served with flatbreads. It is easy to make but do spare at least 2 hours to chill and let the magic of each fresh ingredient to release its full flavour before serving.




  1. 1 can of Cannellini beans, drained

  2. 2 tomatoes diced

  3. a handful of parsley chopped

  4. 1/2 red onion finely sliced

For the dressing:

  1. 1 tsp sumac

  2. Juice of a lemon

  3. 2 tbsp of olive oil

  4. salt and pepper.



Chop all the vegetables and put in a bowl.

Make a dressing by combing all the ingredients together.

Pour the dressing over the salad and chill in the fried for 2 hours.
