Fresh Green Bean Salad

To balance out all the baking I've been doing, we've been eating a lot of salads. Each week, I enjoy going to the farmer's market outside my office and finding fresh veggies to make a new salad with. I stumbled on this recipe on www.allrecipes.com/ for a two bean salad with cherry tomatoes, feta and a balsamic dressing and we were not disappointed. Unlike the other salad dressings we've made, the balsamic was sweet. This will be a regular staple in our summer salad rotation.


  • 1/2 pound green beans

  • 1/2 pound yellow beans

  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/2 brick of feta cheese

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix together the balsamic, oil, garlic and salt and pepper

  • Clean, trim and cut beans into bite-sized pieces

  • Mix vegetables together in a medium-sized bowl with dressing
  • Crumble feta cheese on top
