This recipe is just what I'm looking for. I got 3 cans of butterbeans at home and now I know just how to prepare them. Thanks

Simplicity itself, but I was not as enthralled by the flavour as some viewers. A little too subtle for my palette, but light, quick and enjoyable nonetheless.

I love beans so this worked a treat for me. A nice, non-lettuce salad alternative.

Really nice summer salad and so easy - maximum brownie points for minimum effort! Will be making again for our next BBQ.

This is a really light and refreshing salad. I added finely chopped garlic, cucumber instead of courgette and added a can of tuna to the mix. Really pleased

So easy, healthy and tasty and better prepared in advance, what more can you wish for? Didn't have any courgettes so used cucumber. Friends thought it was amazing and different, felt a bit of a fraud as it was so simple and had been sitting in the fridge for a day!

Had 1/3 of the full recipe on it's own for my tea, delicious! Served anoth 1/3 with a chicken leg for my carnivore husband and had the last 1/3 as a packed lunch the next day. Will definitely make again.
