A simple chilled bean salad that holds up well for transport. Like most bean salad this is best made the night before and add the feta cheese and parsley before serving.

What You'll Need
  • 1 packet frozen baby lima beans.
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 6 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh oregano. (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Parsley Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Feta Cheese crumbled.
  • 1/2 cup Cherry tomatoes cut in half or chopped.
  1. Microwave or boil the baby lime beans slightly less than package directions. You want these to have some body. For frozen beans just defrost them in the microwave and they'll be fine. Boiling them for 1-2 mins and draining is the other option if using frozen Lima beans. They should have some bite to them and not be mushy.
  2. Whisk together the lemon juice, oil, oregano, garlic, salt.
  3. Mix the beans and tomatoes with the dressing and chill for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight. Before serving toss in the feta cheese and parsley. Adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper to taste.

I just tried this and all I can say is it's out of this world delicious. Definitely let the Lima beans marinate overnight in the dressing for fuller flavor. This is going to be my go-to summer salad.
