Geoff's Bean Salad


I was thinking about how I hadn't had one of my favourite salad's in many years one night when planning a dinner on the weekend. I took the next day off from work and lo and behold I happened to switch the telly on during a cooking show in which they were making the sort of bean salad I was thinking of. I've made a couple of changes but I'll still call it Geoff's Bean Salad.


  1. 1 Can Borlotti Beans
  2. 1 Can 3 Bean Mix (Lima, Kidney, Pinto, Great Northern etc.)
  3. 1/2 Cup Fresh Coriander Chopped
  4. 1/3 Cup Fresh Parsley Chopped
  5. 1/8 Cup Fresh Marjoram Chopped
  6. 1 Red Capsicum Diced
  7. 2 Spring Onions Chopped Finely
  8. 1 Spanish/Red Onion Diced
  9. 2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup
  10. 2 Tablespoons Mustard
  11. 4 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  12. 2 Tablespoons Flaxseed/Linseed Oil (Optional)
  13. 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  14. Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Put lemon juice on Spanish Onion. This will make it go lovely and pink, and give it an interesting flavour
  2. Put herbs, beans, onion and capsicum in large bowl.
  3. Stir golden syrup, mustard, apple cider, oil and salt and pepper together well in small bowl.
  4. Pour dressing over other ingredients, mixing well.
  5. Best if covered with tea towel in fridge or cool spot for a little while to soften the herbs.


You can also cook your own beans if you wish, which is what Geoff did in the show. He cooked 1/2 a cup of Borlotti beans, 1/2 cup of kidney beans, 1/2 cup Pinto beans and 1/2 cup of Lima beans in a big pot together until just soft.
