  1. Combine the beans, tomatoes, and lime in a bowl, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Toss gently to mix.
  3. Drizzle with the olive oil.
  4. Serve with crusty bread and a selection of sliced cooked meats.
  • To segment a lime, slice off the top and bottom of the lime. Using a sharp knife or vegetable peeler, carefully slice around the entire lime to remove the skin and pith. Using a small serrated knife, slice away one segment at a time, leaving behind the thin membrane that separates them.
