  • About

The classic “five-bean salad” has given bean salads a rather poor name over the years. At The Gate we regularly use pulses as a base for both salads and salsas. However, it is the fresh herbs and strong seasoning such as the pickled lemon that really bring this dish to life as an accompaniment for grilled vegetables or haloumi cheese.
