Deano’s Bean Salad

Deano’s Bean Salad

I’ve got this mate called Deano. Salt of the earth, good guy, owns a successful building company, likes a good yarn and a few quiets. Turns out he’s quite the foodie too! When I said to him ‘Deano, you always look fit and really healthy. What’s the secret?’ His answer: ‘I eat good food. I don’t eat anything processed, and yes – I eat the occasional pie – but it’s all about real simple food. And this recipe is a winner! Sometimes when I get home from work, I’m not sure what to cook for dinner, so I have a snack on the bean salad that’s always sitting in my fridge and it stops me from eating crap!’

So next time you’re reaching for a biscuit or a bit of chocolate, ask yourself ‘What would Deano do?’
