Greek Salad With Butter Beans
I just got back from the farmers market and there are still tons of cherry and heirloom tomatoes available, so this is the perfect salad to make if you’re looking for something different to pair them with.
This Greek salad with butter beans has the usual components in it, but the butter beans give this salad some added protein and a bit more substance. You can eat this as a simple side salad, or turn it into a great Meatless Monday main salad if you pair it with some crusty bread, popovers, or some DF and GF pop-unders, or even better, add a bowl of heirloom tomato soup, or butternut squash soup.
Butter beans are high in protein (6 grams per 1/2 cup) and fiber, and are high in folate and iron.
Steve and Mattie love this salad, so it’s teen and hubby approved! Below is a photo of the salad when everything is tossed and melded together. It’s a colorful and beautiful medley.
