How to Make Easy Greek Style Bean Salad:

Prepare the ladolemono according to the recipe instructions and set aside.

Add the beans to a mixing bowl. Add the onions and vegetables and toss gently until the ingredients are incorporated.

Pour the ladolemono over the mixture and toss to evenly distribute the dressing. Sprinkle the freshly chopped herbs over the top. At this point you can also sprinkle in the feta cheese and Greek olives if you decide to use them.
