I managed to load this salad up with protein, from a red lentil dip, fava beans and a tahini-salsa dressing.

  1. Put the lima beans in a small pot with some water, and boil or steam for about 5 min.
  2. While that’s happening, wash and tear the lettuce onto a plate, top with the veggies and bean dip.
  3. Stir the salsa and tahini together in a small bowl.
  4. Drain the lima beans once they’re soft, put them on top of the salad, and spoon the dressing on top of everything..
