  • In a frying pan heat the butter and fry the bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the tomatoes to the pan and fry until the skin is blistered. Remove and set aside.
  • In a small frying pan, toast the almonds until aromatic and just browning. Remove and set aside.
  • To assemble, toss together the beans, bacon, tomatoes, feta and almonds in a bowl.
  • Drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  • Toss to coat well and serve.
