Turkish Bean Salad

turkish bean salad

This traditional bean salad is Turkish and fits in perfectly with any mezze meal.  So healthy, but with a tonne of flavour.  Great with grilled chicken or fish.

I love Turkish and Lebanese food.  So simple and nutrient-packed.  I really must get more of it onto the website for everyone to try!
