White Bean Beads & Red Pepper Salad

Summer is here!!! We reached the first week of July, can you believe it!!  I think the first part of the year went by extremely fast.  As I was saying the month of July has arrived, and it is BBQ time, and definitely Salad Time!!!  These delicious little beans translated into English are called  Beads. 🙂  Beads nice!!  I believe that by adding a Summer Salad or this delicious Salad, is always a great side dish to our table.  

These little gems are also a great winter soup.  A simple, and quick soup to make for those cold winter evenings.  I know, I know its hot outside but I am just giving you an idea for the Winter season, if you should want to try it out. 🙂  By adding a few more ingredients let’s say fresh tomatoes, carrots, celery and a few potatoes.   





1 kilo beans 

1 cup Red Peppers

1 Scallions (chopped)

1/2 cup of Parsley (finely chop)

1/2 cup of Olive Oil

3 tablespoons Lemon Juice 

Salt & Pepper



Soak beans over night in water.  Chop Red Pepper and marinade in 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

Drain beans and add in marinated Red Peppers

Finely chop Parsley and Scallions.

In a large bowl add ingredients and top with Olive Oil.


Serve cold and enjoy!!
