    A good base recipe. I fried off the beansprouts in hot sesame oil with some chilli and dark soy sauce for about 30 seconds and used adzuki/azuki beans instead of kidney beans. I didn't use as much olive oil as was suggested because of the addition of the sesame oil but I think four tablespoons would have been too much regardless. I also added chopped peppers, onion, spring onion and shredded lettuce with the cheese before leaving the salad to chill for about an hour in the fridge.  -  25 Jan 2014
