  3. 215g can butter beans, drained and rinsed
  4. 215g can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

For the dressing

  1. 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  2. ½ tbsp honey
  3. Zest and juice of ½ lemon

  1. 1. Blanch the green beans in a pan of boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes until tender. Drain and refresh.
  2. 2. Put the chopped red onion in a sieve and run under cold water to remove some of the harsh flavour of raw onion.

  4. 4. For the dressing whisk the mustard, honey, and the lemon zest and juice. Season, then whisk in the olive oil. Toss with the salad.
