READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by threeovens

A great summertime side salad. Can be prepared in advance up to three days, though it is best served at room temperature.

I doubled the recipe -- and then doubled the olive oil again, so 4T olive oil. I made a paste of the oil, feta, lemon zest & juice from 1/2 of 1 lemon, then added the beans and onion to that, so it coated the beans. Delicious -- DH ate 1/3 of it all by himself!
