“I make this simple salad often for summer barbecues,” writes Denise Neal of Castle Rock, Colorado. “People always like it and ask for the recipe. It can be made a day ahead and kept in the fridge. And it’s good served cold or at room temperature.” TIP: Use care when tossing the salad with the dressing to prevent the tender butter beans from getting crushed.
