This is one of those simple salads that is full of color, flavor and deliciousness. I just combined some simple ingredients I always have at home and as a result this beautiful salad was created. You can eat it as it is or have it as a side dish to a bigger protein source. The salad is completely vegan and the feta cheese is made of coconut (doesn’t taste coconut though, it tastes more like chèvre) and is optional. You can exclude that if you don’t want cheese.

Beans and Feta Cheese?
We add beans and vegan feta cheese to this salad to create a more satisfying salad. This salad is so fresh and healthy, and have a nice balance of carbs, proteins and fats. It can therefore be eaten both as a main dish and a side dish.
You can use “white” beans of almost any kind for this recipe; Cannelloni beans, white beans, chickpeas etc. I have used a package of an organic mixture of the three of these and which is delicious.
