This delicious beans salad is my new favourite for a side with some grilled kebabs or steak. Stir in some pasta to make a complete meal in one plate and, if you are super hungry, top it with some boiled or poached egg…yum!
The mint mango dressing is a delightfully easy, low calorie choice instead of creamy, cheesy options, and it tastes and smells heavenly.
