White Bean And Dill Salad is as simple as it is delicious. I first ate this classic Mediterranean summer salad in Greece. I like to make it with the giant lima beans called Gigantes.... This salad is great with both fresh and canned beans. Choose either cannellini beans or canned giant lima beans, both work well, but be sure to drain and rinse them well before using. If you use home cooked beans, once you’ve drained them, save the broth to add to soups; it freezes really well.
