  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ cup of florinis red pepper pickle
  • ½ cup of parsley

Put the legumes in the pot with water to cover them by 5 cm, boil for 4-5 minutes and discard the first water and add fresh water again.
Lower the heat, add the bay leaves and simmer for about 1 to 1.5 hours.
When the legumes are ready, remove, allow to cool and drain.
Transfer the boiled mixed legumes to a large bowl and add our juices.
Cut the spring onion and the florin pepper into small pieces and finely chop all the herbs and throw them in the bowl with the legumes.
Mix the salad well and add the olive oil, salt and pepper.
