Baked Beans Salad

This is a common salad in South Africa and is very easy to make. It is often served at barbecues or braais, as we say in South Africa. I have used vegetarian baked beans but any variety should work. The recipe calls for green chilies. Just ignore this if you do not like a spicy flavor.


  • 1 small can vegetarian baked beans
  • ¼ cup finely cubed onions
  • 1 small green chili finely sliced (optional)
  • 2 tblsps. vegetarian mayonnaise
  • sprinkling of pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • A few sprigs of coriander/cilantro leaves


  • Empty beans into a bowl and drain any excess liquid from can
  • Mix with all the ingredients. Adjust amount of mayonnaise to your taste
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve
  • Chop cilantro leaves and garnish when ready to serve
