Classified as a "perfect new picnic salad". My stepmom made this about 10 years ago and I loved it; great mix of flavors! She copied the recipe for me and it looks to be out of a magazine but it unfortunately it does not have the name on it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to form dressing.
  2. Toss the remaining ingredients together with the dressing.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I make this salad every week or two in my quest for healthful protein, but I would make it anyway because it's just delicious. I make variations of it depending on what's on hand, but the basic bean/cucumber/dressing combination is what makes this so good. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful flavoured bean salad. I only used chickpeas but know it would be good with both types mixed. I used an unrefined extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. I used Lebanese cucumber (small tender), fresh mint from the garden which I liked in this, plus the rest. I would make this again with the white beans next time. Made for Veggie Swap 24 ~ July 2010.

Mmm, what a lovely fresh and crips salad! The combination of flavours is awesome! The beans go so well with the radishes and cucumber and the scallions really add a lovely tang. I didnt have any mint on hand so I used red basil instead, which worked nicely. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, JB! Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #17.
