fresh green beans and tomatoes

Green beans coming soon!

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
olive oil
balsamic or cider vinegar (really, any kind will probably work)
kosher salt
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.
