Cucumber Fine Bean Salad

Cucumber Fine Bean Salad is one of those lush Summer salads.  This salad can be made raw by not dry roasting the peanuts. Nevertheless, my favourite part of this Cucumber Fine Bean Salad is the dressing which is rich in flavour and goes well with the subtle tastes of the cucumber and fine beans.

Tag me on @ethiveganquantum on Instagram to show me what you’ve made and let me know you’re happy for me to share.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
