Butter Bean, Spinach and Pesto Salad

For the past few weeks, this salad has been my go-to for my work packed lunch. I always take my lunch to work with me because it saves so much money and I'm all about that frugal life. It's super yummy and only takes around five minutes to put together if you've already got pesto on hand. Serve with a big spoonful of hummus for added deliciousness, because hummus takes almost everything to the next level. 

Butter Bean, Spinach and Pesto Salad

You will need (serves 2): 
1 tin butter beans
2 tablespoons green pesto of your choice (I use this recipe)
2 large handfuls spinach*
1 large handful rocket*
1/2 cup sweetcorn
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
8 cherry tomatoes, chopped in half

*I know these handful measurements are pretty vague but I never know how best to measure out salad leaves! I usually just use my judgment of how much I'd eat so add more or less depending on your preference. 

- Simply mix everything together in a large bowl, apart from the tomatoes, and ensure the pesto coats all the ingredients.
- Split into two smaller bowls and add the cherry tomatoes on top, 8 halves on each.
