This is my favourite salad and it’s ‘Super Easy’ to make. I sometimes feel craving for it. That’s why I always stock some tins of four beans in my pantry. Other essential ingredients are fresh crunchy Carrot and Cucumber, and Japanese Mayonnaise. This can be a great side dish, but it also can be a great lunch itself.


2 to 4 Servings


Four Beans 1 tin
Cucumber 1 to 2
Carrot 1 to 2
Cos Lettuce 4 leaves or more
Thick Slice of Ham 1 to 2 slices *optional
Japanese Mayonnaise 3 to 4 tablespoons
Soy Sauce 1/2 to 1 tablespoon

  1. Cut Cucumber and Carrot to small pieces, sprinkle a pinch of salt and mix.
  2. Cut Cos Lettuce and Ham. I cut everything about same size.
  3. Drain Four Beans and rinse, then remove water well.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, add Japanese Mayonnaise and Soy Sauce and mix well and serve.
