Portuguese Black Eyed Bean Tuna salad

Found some lovely black eyed beans today which took me straight into Portuguese Childhood flavour mode.

Portuguese people love their legumes.

This salad works well with chickpeas too.

I used:

1 pound of black eyed beans
1 can of tuna
2 hard boiled eggs
handful of parsley
1/2 onion
some lettuce-of your choice
small plum tomatoes-of your choice
extra extra virgin olive oil
white wine vinegar or lemon
Mixed dried herbs
salt and pepper to taste

I did:

-boil the beans for two hours with no seasoning
drained and cooled them well

-add the raw onion, parsley, tuna, lettuce, tomatoes, dried herbs and boiled eggs

-season with salt and pepper

-drizzle with olive oil and white wine vinegar

-coat it all well and sprinkle with some chopped parsley

-sit down and thoroughly enjoy the flavours!
