You can call them "butter beans" or you can call them "lima beans". I prefer the term "butter beans". So I am going to share with you yet another salad recipe I love to stock my lunch box with. I grabbed this one from Runner's World magazine a few years ago and its a staple. 3 out of 5 of my family members approve. And its perfect for runners with lots of iron, which helps transport oxygen to your muscles.
Now one other thing I need to tell you, that will most likely revolutionize your meals. If you eat things in pretty dishes, they taste even better. Like my absolute favorite pink glass dessert dishes I inherited from GeeGee. This is a trick I learned a few years ago. Your welcome.
Butter Bean Salad
2 cups cooked lima beans
1 red pepper diced
1/4 cup of sliced black olives (sometimes I get crazy and do 1/2 cup because I love olives)
2 Tbsp olive oil
crumbled feta cheese to your liking
salt and pepper to your liking as well.
May your pretty dishes be used often!
