Greek Butter-Bean Salad

This is a lovely greek style salad that my favourite greek friend makes. It's substantial enough to serve as a main course with warm pita and a nice glass of chilled white wine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roughly chop one of the tomatoes and place in a liquidizer with half the mint and garlic and whizz until smooth.
  2. Add the lemon juice and the live oil and some salt and pepper and whizz again to make a smooth dressing.
  3. Cut the remaining tomatoes into wedges and toss with the butter beans, olives, red onions, feta and dressing.
  4. Transfer to serving plates, scatter over the reserved mint and serve with warm pitta bread.

Absolutely lovely salad! I used fresh baby limas and a little extra garlic. The combination of the beans and kalamata olives and feta and the dressing is excellent. Everyone who tasted it loved it.
