From my one stop Turkish recipe site: turkingcookbook.com. I replaced half of the white cannellini beans with kidney beans for added color.

Loved it! It's a pretty and colorful salad, and it was super easy to make. It actually tasted even better after chilling for a few hours. I made this exactly as written and used all the garnishes listed. I think this is one of my new favorite bean salads. Thanx!

I cut this recipe in half since DH was the only one eating it. I made as written but left out the fresh parsley (he doesn't like it). He enjoyed the addition of the egg. Made for NA*ME tag

Delicious salad. I loved the lemon dressing. The colours made it look so very inviting. Thank you, CG.
