Cook's Notes

Butter beans, or small lima beans, are fresh in the summer. You can freeze them to use all winter, but frozen small limas may be used as well. Fresh butter beans will cook for 25 to 30 minutes -- much longer than frozen lima beans.

    Very nice salad. I couldn't find fresh or frozen butter beans so had to use canned lima beans, but it was fine. Also couldn't find fresh tarragon, so used dried. Again, it worked out well. Made it first thing in the morning and left it covered on the counter all day so that the flavours could set and to keep it at room temperature. It was perfect with the ham & scalloped potatoes on the Easter menu! Will make all three dishes again next year - nothing more, nothing less. It was a perfect meal!
