  1. Amazing salad super easy, super tasty, the apple cider & maple syrup is game changer, I’ve made many bean salads but this is the best so far, thanks James!

  2. Perfect to make during a heatwave, very refreshing! So easy to put together and the dressing especially is super yummy! Will definitely be making this again☺️

  3. Packed with tasty protein and delightful to look at with all it’s colours, thus three bean salad went down a treat. A few days ago, I was saying to a friend how three been salads in tins are awful. The dressing overpowers it and then this little number comes up on Instagram. I used a garlic infused olive oil in my dressing. Very filling and quick to prepare. Thanks James.

  4. Really yummy and so quick to throw together, the dressing has the perfect combination of crisp sharpness with a sweet tang ❤️
