Judion butterbean salad recipe

Judion butterbeans, olive, sun blushed tomato, garlic, roasted red onions + herbs

Butterbean salad for events and lunches

Great with any dish, whether with meat or other vegetables, on its own or as a lunchbox choice.  Butter beans are low fat and  a good source of iron, zinc and magnesium. They are high in protein (as much as found in poultry, meat and seafood so are a great alternative to meat).

You can soak them yourself, or buy a jar of giant butter beans (which are our favourites) found in the deli.

Ingredients

1 kg dry butter beans soaked overnight

500g sunblush tomatoes

1kg red onions peeled and sliced

1 bunch tarragon

1 bunch parsley

100ml olive oil

200g black olives

Method…
Boil the beans until soft and refresh and drain.

Sear the onions in batches in hot skillet and deglaze each batch with a splash of wine vinegar.

Mix onions, beans, sunblush tomatoess, olives, chopped herbs and plenty of seasoning.

Keep in the fridge.
