A simple yet sophisticated Bean, Basil & Feta Salad is the perfect compliment to any dinner, particularly barbecued lamb or beef.


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 400g green beans, ends trimmed
  • 400g can cannellini beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 bunch basil, leaves picked
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Blanch green beans in a large pan of boiling water for 1-2 mins, until bright green. Drain and rinse under cold water to refresh. Transfer to a platter. Scatter with cannellini beans and basil. Top with feta.
  2. Mix together dressing ingredients and drizzle over salad when ready to serve. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
