Instructions Checklist
  • Thinly slice the onion and place into a colander over the sink. Add the cleaned green beans to a large pot of boiling water and boil until crisp tender (about 4 minutes). When the beans are done, drain the water into the colander to slightly cook the onions. Immediately rinse all in cold water to stop the cooking process.

Absolutey amazing! I did make a slight modification though. I used 1/4 C ea. red wine vinegar balsamic vinegar and cider vinegar. I just eyeballed the amount of oil but I know I didnt use 1/3 of a cup thats too much. I probably went a little heavier on the garlic and feta too. I just put my onions in fresh not with the hot water over them. Going to try with red onions next time. Ive made this twice in the past week and it doesn't stay around long! Read More

I loved the flavors and would make it again but you do need to cut the dressing in half and it is a good idea to drain excess the next day if you have any left over. The next day the flavors are even better. Read More

A good salad but I must say the dressing is very strong and pungent. Have mints handy!! Read More

Very good. I leave the beans whole and omit the feta. We eat the beans like french fries next to a sandwich or burger. Dressing is tasty. There was a good bit of dressing left over and I reused it on another batch that were just as good. Have also substitued balsamic vinegar for the apple cider vinegar with positive results. My new favorite way to eat green beans. Read More

I cut the oil measurement in half and used half balsamic vinegar -- it got rave reviews from everyone. Is quick easy and gets better the next day. Read More

I was surprised at how well this salad came out. The only thing is that the beans kinda turned yellowish after they sat in the dressing (the photo was taken right after dressing was poured on top). Read More

Liked the flavor. My husband thought it was a four star dish but plans to revisit it in the morning and thinks it will become a 5-star after the flavors meld more. Didn't have any dressing problems and followed the recipe exactly; used a 16-ounce bag of frozen green beans and added a little bit more feta so maybe the feta absorbed some of the dressing.

This was so good I ate two large bowlfulls as soon as it was ready. I variated from the recipe by draining off the excess marinade the next day (through a colander) and then added chopped up ham to make it a meal. The feta cheese adds the perfect touch. Read More

My good friend made this with our dinner last night -- it was SO yummy! He used olive oil instead of canola and added grape tomatoes. I will definitely make this. Read More
