Cannellini Bean Salad with Avocado and Sweet Tomatoes

by Shalveena Rohde,

I've been trying to include more beans in out meals, but I'm not a huge bean fan so it's proving difficult! But I've found the perfect, quick, easy and delicious bean salad. And to my disbelief, I even found myself craving this one day! 😲


  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained

  • 1/2 avocado, chopped

  • 8 - 10 snacking tomatoes, quartered

  • 1/8 - 1/4 onion (or to your taste. I don't like raw onion too much so I only put a tiny bit in)

  • fresh coriander, chopped

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar (you can probably substitute with apple cider vinegar or sherry vinegar)

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • 1/2 tsp salt (taste and add more at the end if needed)

  • 1/8 tsp of sumac


  1. Finely chop the onions then put it into a small bowl. Add the vinegar and lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Mix it together and set aside.

  2. In a large salad bowl, add the beans, avocado, tomatoes and corriander. Add the chopped onions. Add the olive oil, salt and sumac.

  3. Mix everything together and you're done!
