Creamy avocado, salty feta cheese and sweet-bitter caramelized lemon slices make this vegetarian bean salad recipe a standout. Using different colors, sizes and shapes of beans makes this salad extra special. But any bean that interests you, even canned, will work.




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place lemon slices on the baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Roast until golden brown and crisp in spots, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the remaining oil, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add beans, feta and avocado. Toss to combine.

  • Just before serving, add lettuce and toss to coat. Top with the lemons and serve immediately.
