Four bean salad with bulgur wheat and herbs

  • Julia Platt Leonard

Beans -- everything from traditional green beans to broad beans and runner beans -- are hitting the green grocer shelves this month. Blanch them and pair with lots of lemon (juice and zest), some bulgur wheat and as many herbs as you can chop and you've got the perfect summer salad. I know some leave the case on broad beans but I think it looks and tastes much better, once you've peeled them. It can be meditative too (if you're not in a rush) and you've got the windows open and the music cranked. Recipe on 15 June in The Independent.
