I don't see why not. I made bean salad for years and years and what you put in doesn't have to be the same every time. It just has to be beans - legumes and fresh garden beans. There is no specific set of beans to go into a bean salad. Just because KFC makes 'a' bean salad, that doesn't mean that is the only combination to use.

Perfectly fine,just bear in mind that butter beans are far larger. I love butter beans. I also substitute cannelini beans for chickpeas in both of the vege tikka masal that i do as i dont like the hardness of the chickpeas and the taste either.
