A scintillating summer salad

When our pools beckon us, and the aroma of braai smoke fills our rosy-pink sunset skies in summer, it’s time to celebrate with family and friends around the braai by enjoying delicious and healthy meals, like this a scintillating, fresh Mediterranean Bean and Pepper Salad from KOO.

Beans are a great accompaniment to any salad, as they are full of fibre and nutrients, and because KOO’s range of canned beans and legumes are ready-to-eat, you can easily prepare meals from salads, lunches, dinner and everything in-between in no time at all, allowing you more time to spend enjoying the hot outdoors.

Dish up more love and savour the summertime in style, with this recipe that packs in taste and convenience.
