Murray’s authentic Asian style salad

So we’ve been eating a lot of salad lately and I’ve been experimenting a bit using a tin of beans as a basis. Tonights was particularly good so I thought I’d share. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Caveat lector: I can claim many to be things but a chef I absolutely am not.


2 cups of wholemeal pasta cooked firm and allowed to cool
1 600g large tin 4 bean mix
1 handful of pistachio’s, shelled
6 spring onions sliced thinly
1 white onion chopped finely
2 handfuls of English spinach, rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
12 tablespoon virgin olive oil
12 tablespoon of sesame oil
12 tablespoon of Tamari sauce

Mix all ingredients. Serve. Enjoy. Feeds 4.
