Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 cup fresh shelled cranberry beans or other white bean
  • 4 cups trimmed green and yellow beans cut into 2" lengths
  • 3 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup red onion slivers
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh marjoram + more at the end
  • 2/3 cup feta cheese

Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Instructions

Salad

  • Fill a large, heavy pot with water and bring to a roiling boil. Add the cranberry beans and cook for 10 minutes. Add the green and yellow beans and cook for an additional 10 minutes, or until all beans are tender. Drain.
  • Combine the beans with the tomatoes, red onion, 1 Tbsp minced marjoram, and feta cheese in a large bowl. Toss well using a large metal spoon. Dress with the dressing (recipe below), and toss again. Serve at room temperature with a flourish of extra marjoram.

Dressing

  • Whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper until the salt is dissolved into the juice. Gradually whisk in the olive oil.
