Greek Style Butter Bean Salad


A quick lunch or side salad combining some of my favourite ingredients – butter beans, feta and greens!

Recipe (Serves 3-4)


  • 10 baby tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 a cucumber, diced into coins, then coins quartered
  • 3 handfuls of washed spinach leaves
  • 10-12 olives, halved (I used a Tesco pack – a jar would do either)
  • 1 pack of feta cheese, diced into bite-size chunks
  • 1 handful of pine nuts
  • 1 400g tin of butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper, core and seeds removed, and sliced into strips lengthways


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 175C, and line a baking tray with tinfoil greased with a little olive or rapeseed oil. Roast the red pepper strips in the oven for 15-20 minutes, then leave aside to cool.
  2. While the peppers are roasting, pop all of your other ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and stir to combine!
  3. When the pepper strips are cooled, slice them into smaller pieces, then add them to the salad.
  4. You’re done! I told you this was a quick one! Add a dressing such as balsamic vinegar if you like, I have done in the past and it’s pretty tasty – pesto would work well too!

Enjoy guys! As always, tag me if you try this recipe out – @theirishbalance on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook!
