  1. If you like feta cheese, crumble half a block onto the salad
  2. If broad beans and butter beans aren't easily available where you are, you could substitute with chickpeas, or black beans, or black-eyed beans too. Use your favourites
  3. If you're looking for some Indian flavours, add a large handful of chopped coriander and mix through, and a level teaspoon of chaat masala!
