I make this salad fairly often, but today's is extra special because Mom and I shelled these lima beans ourselves. They came from a farm just up the road.
LIMA BEAN SALAD
Lay a bed of greens on each serving plate.
Steam lima beans until tender, then rinse in a couple of changes of cool water until they are just a little warm. Pile them on the greens. Drizzle with a simple vinaigrette (olive oil, wine vinegar, sea salt, pepper, plus fresh tarragon, parsley, marjoram, etc., if you have them).
Top with a dollop of dressing made from equal parts prepared horseradish, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard. Sprinkle with minced red onion.
