This Mexican-inspired salad works well as an addition to wraps, tacos and burritos. It's also good to spoon onto scrambled eggs. Of course, it's great on it's own, too! If you can't find tinned black beans, substitute dried or a tin of borlotti beans.

This simple warm salad is full of crunchy textures, and handy to make when time is short. Serve with soured cream or Greek-style yoghurt to balance the hot chillies. Delicious!

A simple and tasty bean salad inspired by fresh Mexican flavours. This is great on its own with tortilla chips, or as a side to tacos, burritos or fajitas.

The lively flavours of Mexico combine in this supper dish of spicy swordfish steaks paired with a salsa-style kidney bean salad based on the famous avocado dip, guacamole. Serve with boiled brown or white rice or, to carry through the Mexican theme, warm flour tortillas.

Every summer my family meets up at the beach for a week and cooks massive meals. This salad stays crisp and fresh for a buffet. Perfect for picnics or your long and lazy summer barbecues in the garden.
