Cornouaillaise salad


Cornouaillaise salad
This salad combines the soft texture of haricot beans with the crunch of croutons.



Translator's note: Brittany has its own equivalent of the British Cornwall (hence the similar name), showing how close the languages and cultural roots of the two regions are.
