  • Lower the heat to medium low and add the beans and corn and cook for about 5-7 minutes, stirring often, until just al dente (not soft)
  • Transfer to a large serving bowl and add the tomatoes, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Let cool for about 10-15 minutes.

Although lima beans are traditional, feel free to use edamame, white or fava beans too.
Omit the feta cheese for a vegan option.
Add cooked, chopped bacon if desired.
Add in additional vegetables like green beans or sweet peas.
Swap basil for dill or parsley
Fresh or frozen beans, cooked al dente, are best. Canned lima beans are much softer.
Fresh or frozen corn are best but canned can be used.
Use coconut oil or ghee to saute onion if preferred.
