A wonderfully refreshing bean salad, great served alongside BBQ meats. Every now and again I'll add in a chopped tomato or two.
- Drain the beans and rinse under cold water, drain well.
- Into a food processor or blender, put the garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, basil leaves, parsley leaves, cumin, salt and pepper.
- Pulse for a few seconds so that there is still texture. Put the beans into a bowl and pour over the dressing, toss well.
- If possible leave for at least 30 minutes at room temperature before serving -- but can be eaten right away and still be very flavoursome.
