Method

  1. Bring a small pan of water to the boil. Add the beans, return to the boil and cook for 4 mins. Drain in a colander under running water until cold. Press each bean out of its skin into a bowl.

  2. Crumble over the feta and scatter over the mint leaves. Season with a good grind of black pepper and drizzle with 2 tsp of the oil. Toss together.

  3. Toss the salad leaves and tomatoes with the remaining olive oil and lemon juice. Divide between 2 plates. Toast the bread under the grill or in a toaster until golden and crisp on both sides. To serve, spoon the bean and cheese mixture onto the warm toasts and place alongside the salad.

This was very tasty, good for a light lunch in the summer time. I used goats cheese instead of feta though as that's what I had in the fridge at the time, and still worked very well.
