Summery Bean, Tomato and Chilli Salad (Graf, Domati i Piperki Salata)

Shared by: Vesa
Recipe origin: Capari, Macedonia

They say that the more colourful the ingredients on your plate, the better it is for you. I guess they’d be right with this summery bean salad, brought to life with fresh mint, garden tomatoes and sweet grilled chillies.

This would have to be one of my favourite summer salads which serves as the most delicious topping on grilled bread. If you already have a few grilled chillies in the fridge, this salad literally takes no more than a few minutes to bang together.

Serve as a light lunch, a rustic appetiser for guests or as a salad accompanying fish, salami or kjofte with a dollop of fresh yoghurt.


Serves 4 as an appetiser

1 small garlic clove, crushed
400g can of white beans, rinsed and drained
2 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
4-5 grilled chillies, stems and seeds discarded, flesh roughly chopped
1/3 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly torn
1/4 cup olive oil
Sea salt to taste

8 slices bruschetta, ciabatta or sourdough, brushed with olive oil and grilled

1) In a medium bowl add beans, crushed garlic and mix well. Add tomatoes, chillies, mint, olive and salt, mix to combine and serve immediately on grilled bread.

    Once again you’ve shared another fabulous looking and tasty dish. I’ll be awaiting the arrival of summer here to delight my family with this recipe once our garden is brimming with fresh mints,tomatoes and chillies. Grilling the bread will add a layer of flavor to this tempting salad dish. Thank you so much for giving us this wonderfully healthy family recipe.
