Quick, easy, and tasty. Can be used as a side dish or a snack on it's own. Great as a salad topper. Good with sea salt kettle chips, or toast.

As a recipe's first reviewer one can sometimes be in unfamiliar territory without the benefit of others' remarks. As this recipe's first reviewer that wasn't an issue for me. While this is called a Lebanese Bean Salad it could just as easily be called an Italian Bean Salad for the ingredients the flavors are the same. I knew I'd love it! In my mind you just can't go wrong with the light dressing of olive oil and lemon. (Tho' I could take or leave the fava beans personally) Read More

I loved this recipe. I added some tarragon because I like that fennel-like sweet taste that tarragon has and fennel would over-power this dish. I also added a splash of apple cider vinegar. The hubble liked it a lot too but I thought he was going to blast me out of the bed that night! So be warned. Beans can be a musical fruit AND a war horn. But then again they're purportedly good for your heart. Read More

Delicious and easy to make. i omitted the parsley and added finely chopped green peppers, celery and sweet onion. I make this at the start of the week and take some for lunch daily. Such an easy addition, filling with lots of lean protein and fibre. :) Read More

This is a very good very simple recipe. I LOVE garlic but this was a tad garlicy for someone who isn't crazy about. That's a plus to me though. I also added about 1/2 of a cup of frozen corn about a Tbs of red wine vinegar and about a half a cup of low fat feta on my second go around. These are all approximations as I just kinda poured in each ingredient until it looked good. Very good recipe that lends itself to personalization if desired. Read More
