    Classic recipe

    Spicy Italian Snow Cap Bean Salad

    Snow Cap Beans retain their distinctive ivory-colored “cap of snow” markings and rustic red body when cooked, making them ideal for this visually striking Italian bean salad. Their smooth, almost potato-like texture plays off the freshness of the lemon and basil, while crushed Calabrian Chiles lend a tinge of heat.
