Giant Bean Salad....Interesting And Refreshing

During summer we have to wrack our brains to think of new salads to make because they are light, and refreshing. Since beans are good for you, here is an idea I came up with...





You will need:
Serves 4 as a main meal.
-  250 gms of giant beans (broad beans) soaked overnight.
-  1 large onion roughly chopped.
-  2 medium raw zucchini thinly sliced.
-  2 medium cucumbers normally sliced.
-  2 red grilled sweet peperoni sliced.
-  15 - 20 pitted black Kalamata olives.
-  3  Tbsp. of the marinated green olives (recipe labeled Jams and Preserves).
-  3 Tbsp. olive oil.
-  1 Tbsp. cream of balsamic vinegar.
-   1 tsp. cider vinegar.
-  Salt and freshly ground pepper
-  1 tsp. Herbes de Provence.
Method:
-  Mix all the above and refrigerate for about an hour (it must be served cold)  et voila!!
