Mixed Beans Salad

Was just wondering if there is a concept of salad in any Indian dish… If yes, mostly we cut some onions, tomatoes, cucumber and mix them all together with some spices! That’s all about it… I love beans to be included in salad dishes. This time I got a lovely dressing for these beans along with slivered almonds :) Wow… It added a lovely nutty punch to beans!

This is a must-try protein-packed salad to have with Indian meal or even with a Fusion/International dish :)

Mix Beans Salad


  • Add your choice of beans to make this salad. I had a mix of red kidney beans, baby lima beans, chickpeas and butter beans :)
  • If you’re not using can, soak these beans overnight in water and pressure-cook them before using in this salad!
