  • 3 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 30 Ounces canned butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon drained capers

In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the mustard. When combined, gradually whisk in the olive oil. Stir in the chives, and season with salt and pepper.

Butter Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Butter Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
