Butter Beans Salad
You need to begin preparation a day in advance.
- 1 cup dry large flat beans (they are called butter beans / french beans / vaal – they may be white or red and white. The red and white ones are best for this if you can get them)
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 medium onion
- lemon juice
Soak the beans overnight and let them cook till they are well done, or cook in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles depending on the cooker.
When the beans are cool mix with the other ingredients and let them stand a while before serving to let the herbs blend their flavours in.
