Suzi Sheffield’s Quinoa and Baby Butterbean Salad

Suzi Sheffield’s Quinoa and Baby Butterbean Salad
Serves 8
This cool, refreshing salad is perfect for summer — with fresh butterbeans and lots of herbs. Beautiful Briny Sea’s Suzi Sheffield developed it to use with her French Picnic salt, which contains thyme, lavender, garlic, pink peppercorn. But you may use any salt of choice. The addition of a roasted Meyer lemon adds a nice gentle zing.
