Until then I bought some fresh beans at the grocery store, along with organic grape tomatoes.
This is a delicious salad that is light and healthy! And it's simple. If you don't feel like cleaning and cutting the beans, you could buy a bag of pre-washed green beans (but what fun would that be!?).
You will need:
1 pound of fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
1 quart of grape tomatoes, halved
balsamic or cider vinegar (really, any kind will probably work)
dash of garlic powder
I like the beans tender-crisp, so I steamed them for just a couple minutes. Once they were cooled, place the beans and tomatoes in a bowl along with a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of vinegar. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
Eat immediately, or, allow to sit for a little while so that the flavors incorporate.
I come from a long line of good cooks! So it's no surprise that I love to cook, bake, and most importantly- eat! My husband and I are passionate about food (especially when it's local), and this blog is written to share our food experiences, recipes, and thoughts. And now that we have a new daughter, we can't wait to pass on our food traditions to her!
