Hawaiian Butter Bean Salad

With A Blast : Hawaiian Butter Bean Salad

This is another salad I make regularly, it is very different than the usual three-bean salad and very refreshing with any meal.

I have been making this salad for such a long time, I know the recipe by heart, but I could not find it among any of my recipe books where I must have found it - I might have looked for the wrong name or maybe it was in a magazine.

Anyhow, if you are tired of the usuals - give this one a try as it is very quick to make and can easily be doubled or tripled if needed.


{10 - 12 portions}

1 can (410g) Butter Beans, do not drain
1 can (425g) Pineapple Pieces, do not drain
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Vinegar
2 TB Cornflour mixed with a little water 
Spring Onions or Chives, chopped

1.) Place all the ingredients {except the Spring Onions/Chives} in a pot {for stove top} or a microwavable bowl {for microwave} - heat over medium heat {stove top} or HIGH {microwave} until thick - if using the microwave, stir every 1 - 2 minutes.

Let cool completely, garnish with the Spring Onions or Chives and serve chilled.

This salad keeps well in a sealed container for up to two days.

Bye-bye now,
