Mediterranean-style bean salad

Mediterranean-style bean salad, a quick no-cook dish, which can be eaten on it's own or goes nicely with steamed white fish e.g. cod.

Serves Four
290g jar artichoke heart in oil
1 tbsp. sundried tomato paste
1 tsp white wine vinegar
410g can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
300g small vine tomato, quartered (about 12 in total)
handful Kalamata black olives
2 spring onions (scallions), thinly sliced on the diagonal

200g log soft goat's cheese, crumbled *

1. Drain the jar of artichokes, reserving 3 tbsp. of the oil. Pour the oil into a bowl and stir in the sun-dried tomato paste and vinegar until smooth. Season to taste.
2. Roughly chop the artichokes and tip into a large bowl with the cannellini beans, tomatoes, olives, spring onions and half the goat’s cheese. Stir in the artichoke oil mixture and tip into a serving bowl. Season to taste. Crumble over the remaining goat’s cheese, then serve

* You could use a can of tuna and flake it into the salad instead of the goat’s cheese.
 You could use Feta cheese if preferred

When I first saw the photo, I thought the goat cheese WAS feta. That would be my choice. This sounds great and something I know I can easily make. Thanks for the recipe, Jan.

As I have an aversion to beans, I'd have to pass on this one.
