Dilled Bean Salad

This savoury bean salad is not as sweet as the bean salad of the 50’s. Add cooked fish for a luncheon dish or picnic.
Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (750 ml) cooked White Pea Beans
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) lemon juice
  • ½ tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) dried dillweed, or 2 tbsp (25 ml) minced fresh dill
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

In a large bowl combine beans and green onions. Mix oil, juice, salt, dill and pepper together; pour over beans and toss lightly to mix. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or up to 2 days. Garnish if desired at serving time. Serve with roasted or grilled meats or fish on a buffet.
Optional Garnishes:
Red onion slices, radish slices, or cherry tomatoes and fresh dill sprigs.

Variations:
1. Add 1/2 clove garlic, crushed to dressing.
2. Add drained canned tuna or cooked salad shrimp.
