Bocconcini and cannellini salad

With a feeling that Spring will be here soon and that I need to stop eating heavy wintry foods, I put together this delicious salad for lunch the other day. The key ingredients are the cannellini beans and the bocconcini. The bocconcini which were fresh and delicious provided a soft touch to the palate in contrast to the beans.  And, of course, the basil, ginger and garlic added some of my favourite flavours to the mix.


210 gr bocconcini
400 gr cannellini beans
10 cherry tomatoes
1.5 Lebanese cucumbers
1/2 red pepper
Fresh basil to taste
2 tsp ginger
2 cloves garlic


Drain the bocconcini and place in a salad bowl
Drain the cannellini and add
Halve the cherry tomatoes and add
Roughly chop the red pepper and cucumbers as you wish and add
Peel and crush the garlic and ginger and add
Chop the basil and add
Toss to combine thoroughly and consume.
