Black-Eyed Beans's Salad

Salad with black-eyed beans and herbs. The addition of smoked salmon makes it even more delicious and gives it its characteristic flavor. Try a salad, that can easily replace the main dish on the table and is second to none in flavor, vitamins and fiber! It can accompany almost any dish you like. I prefer it plain, enjoying all the flavor it gives.

The black bean is widespread in many parts of the world and particularly popular in Asia, southern Europe, the Southern United States and South America.
In the kitchens of the world they have been cooked in various ways, very often in the form of puree with the addition of aromatic herbs, onion and pepper and then fried in hot oil, like croquettes. And a lot more variations.
In Greece and Cyprus we tend to eat them more as a salad and less frequently as a stew or something else.
