2 Italian sausage
2 tablespoons good quality olive oil
lemon juice from 1/2 lemon

Heat grill to medium high and cook sausage until rich golden brown on both sides, about 8 minutes per side.

Spread dressed greens on a dinner plate, then add washed and drained beans.

Finely chop each of the remaining ingredients separately, then plate on top of beans and greens in concentric circles.
