Simple, seasonal and fresh, this heirloom cattle bean summer salad was born from a stroll through the farmers market for inspiration. The petite green beans, the vibrant cherry tomatoes, and the fresh fennel bulb with gorgeous fronds of greens – every ingredient just felt right in the moment that I laid eyes on them.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Start by rinsing the Cattle Beans (1 cup) and then soaking them in a bowl with Water (8 cups) and Salt (1 Tbsp) . Soak the beans overnight (for about 12 hours).
Step 2
Drain soaking liquid from beans, add beans to a medium stockpot with plenty of water to cover them. Put in Salt (1 tsp) , Garlic (1 clove) , Bay Leaves (2 pieces) , and Fresh Rosemary (2 sprigs) .
Step 3
Bring beans to a simmer over medium heat, skim off any foam that accumulates on the surface, and then set heat to low. Simmer beans for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally until beans are soft. Make sure that the beans stay submerged the whole time.
Step 4
When beans are finished cooking, they should be soft and creamy on the inside. Drain beans from cooking water, and remove Garlic, Bay Leaf, and Rosemary.
Step 5
Allow beans to cool to room temperature.
Step 6
While the cattle beans cool, blanch your French Beans (1 2/3 cups) , reserving about 1/2 cup of the fennel greens to be added to the salad.
Step 7
Mince Garlic (1 clove) and add to a small bowl with the Lemon (1) , Olive Oil (1/2 cup) , Salt (to taste) , and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Whisk dressing until well combined.
Step 8
Combine blanched French Beans, cooled cattle beans, Cherry Tomatoes (1 1/2 cups) , Fennel Bulb (1) , and dressing to a bowl.
Step 9
Toss the salad until all of the ingredients are well coated in dressing - enjoy immediately or for best results, cover and allow salad to marinate in the fridge for a day or two.
