HEIRLOOM BEAN SALAD WITH MONTE ENEBRO

6) Whisk the dressing ingredients together, mix with the Verdina beans and check the seasoning. Adjust as necessary, adding more lemon juice as required.

7) Spoon two-thirds of the Verdina beans onto a serving plate, pile over the beans and asparagus, then top with the remaining Verdina beans. 

8) Sprinkle over the pine nuts, parsley and chives, and the goat cheese. Add a final glug of extra virgin olive oil and a grind of pepper.
