Butter Bean Nicoise Salad

Updated: Sep 17

Just thinking about this recipe is making me hungry. It's healthy, simple to make, and really yummy to eat. I had never tried butter beans before and I was pleasantly surprised! They are larger beans but have a great texture. The potatoes helped bulk out the dish and made it super filling. The combo of kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes, and olive oil is simply stunning. It makes a great healthy lunch on a hot day.




Ingredients:

5 1/2 oz fingerling potatoes, cut in half

2 oz green beans, trimmed and cut into pieces

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp whole grain mustard

1 can of butter beans, drained and rinsed

2 oz cherry tomatoes, halved

1 oz kalamata olives, halved and pitted

salt & pepper to taste


Method:
