Preparation -- 30 minutes

Fill a medium-sized pan with water and bring to a boil. Meanwhile rinse the beans by removing the ends and cook them in the boiling water for about 5 minutes.

Drain the beans and let them cool off completely. Meanwhile peel and finely chop or grate a garlic clove and a piece of ginger root. Peel the carrots and divide them into small piece, we've used a spiralizer but you can chop them in any desired shape.

Rinse a piece of cucumber and the radishes and chop them both into slices. Rinse the lettuce if needed and tear into pieces. Rinse half a pepper, remove the seeds and divide into thin strips.
