It is very simple recipe. You may keep the salad up to 3 days in hermetically closed pot in refrigerator (The second day is the best). You can use almost all kinds of beans, even Italian brown lentils. I did not include soaking time in this recipe. We use pumpkin oil for this recipe, but since it has strong and peculiar taste it may be strange for non-Croatians. You may use normal oil, but not olive oil.
