2 Tablespoons small capers
For the dressing
60 ml olive oil

Make the dressing whisking together the oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic and salt.

Mix all prepared ingredients in a large bowl, pour the dressing and serve.

Recipe from "Rick Stein's Long Weekends: Over 100 New Recipes from My Travels Around Europe " by Rick Stein

Red Beans, Onion & Pepper Pate

Yield 1 & 1/2 cups

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 small jalapeno, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 can red beans, drained, liquid reserved
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Additional salt and ground black pepper to taste

Place a large saute pan over medium-high heat and drizzle with oil. Add onion, sprinkle with salt and saute for 5 minutes. Add red pepper and stir, saute for more 2-3 minutes. When onion and peppers are softened, add jalapeno, cumin, paprika, sugar, and beans. Sprinkle again with salt and continue to saute for more 3-4 minutes. Take out from the heat and leave to cool for 2-3 minutes.

Pour mixture into a bowl of the food processor, add 1 tablespoon of the reserved liquid and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Process until smooth. Check for seasonings.

The red beans pate will keep for 4 days in the refrigerator.
