Raspberry & Basil Butter Bean Salad


What do you mean it’s too cold to eat a salad? This may be one for the health conscious but it is delicious none the less. Full of vitamins and minerals, this salad is fresh, tangy and sweet. The butter beans balance the sweet and sour of the raspberries beautifully.
