- 500g (1lb 2oz) baby plum tomatoes
- 1 x 400g tin butter beans
- 1 red onion
- 2tbsp oregano
- black pepper
- 1tbsp sherry vinegar
- 3tbsp olive oil
Place 500g (1lb 2oz) baby plum tomatoes (halved), 1 x 400g tin butter beans (rinsed and drained), 1 red onion (peeled, halved and thinly sliced) and 2tbsp oregano (leaves stripped from the stalk and roughly chopped) in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, drizzle over 1tbsp sherry vinegar and 3tbsp olive oil, mix and serve.
The flavours in this salad really improve after a couple of hours. You could use other tinned beans – cannellini, flageolet or borlotti. Never keep tomatoes in the fridge as it kills their flavour.
