Butter Bean Tomato Salad Recipe

“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.
