Piyaz- Turkish Bean Salad

Piyak is a Turkish Bean Salad 

Cook white beans, when tender, add one onion sliced thinly into semicircles. Add lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil to the beans. Season to taste.  Chill for a couple of hours.

The interesting part of this salad is the presentation as it is assembled in layers.
First mix in chopped parsley into bean mix. Using a large plate spread the bean mixture into it.  Layers of black olives, quarters of tomatoes and hard boiled eggs are added. Drizzle Olive oil on top and season with pepper. I added a hot chile to the salad. 

A perfect way to enjoy a hot summer night with some crusty bread!
