Coconut & Chilli Bean Salad

I love a good side salad - and this one is perfect for summer when beans are cheap! It's a great way to have them a little different then normal. It's SO delicious and is set to be a new fave!

Serves: 4
500g green string beans, topped and tailed 
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced 
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoon crushed nuts 

1 tablespoon sesame oil 
1 tablespoon hoisin tamari
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 
1 small red chilli, de-seeded and finely diced 
1 garlic clove, crushed 
1 table spoon brown sugar 


  1. Blanch the string beans or steam until just tender (you still want a little bite!)
  2. Combine all ingredients under "dressing" in a bowl and mix well. 
  3. Place the beans, onion, coconut and nuts into a bowl and pour over dressing. 
  4. Eat warm or cold!
