I made this recipe with canned butter beans but you can use any white bean or beans cooked from dry if you prefer. I chose the canned beans because I was short on time and I chose the large butter beans because I think they're pretty and kind of whimsical.

Step By Step Photos
I used these large butter beans but you can use any white bean. This is just a regular sized can, somewhere between 12 and 15 oz.
Drain the beans of the liquid in the can and then rinse under cool water. Drain well in a colander.
Rinse, drain, and chop the parsley.
Combine the beans, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
Give everything a good stir. Either serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat. The flavors will intensify as it refrigerates.
So easy, so good.
