This came from the BBC's tv program Economy Gastronomy. They served this as part of a whole meal as a side dish with roast lamb. We made the whole meal, too, but the salad was the best part! This could be a main dish for a veggie meal.

Most Helpful

Excellent. I used a flat pan and had to add a bit of oil after each vegetable, but then I did not need to add oil for drizzling on the salad. I did not add the feta as we are trying to cut back on saturated fats. I did add lots of balsamic vinegar, probably a quarter cup. Next time I might add more beans. I used great northern beans because I could not find a can of butter beans. Tasted great and husband liked it too. Next time I might try it out on the grill.
