4 cups cauliflower, cut into florets 600 g
1/2 cup green/snap beans, cut into pieces 50 g
2 green onions/scallions, thinly sliced
2 cups red beans (canned), drained and rinsed 500 mL
100 g feta cheese, light, crumbled

2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
1/4 tsp balsamic vinegar 1.25 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

  1. Prepare the cauliflower: Cut it into equal-size florets, then blanch them in a pot of salted boiling water until they are crisp-tender, about 5-6 min.

  3. Meanwhile, pour the oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar into a salad bowl, then beat, using a fork, until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Add the cooked vegetables, green onions, and red beans. Crumble the feta cheese then add it to the bowl and toss well
  4. Chill in the refrigerator for about 1 h. Adjust the seasoning then serve.
