  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook green beans in boiling water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes; drain. Plunge beans into a bowl filled with ice water to cool; drain beans.
  2. Combine red wine vinegar, rice vinegar, ground ginger, sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and sesame seeds in a bowl. Whisk canola oil into the vinegar mixture until thoroughly incorporated; season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Toss green beans, grape tomatoes, and shredded carrot in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over the green bean mixture; toss to coat.

I used the tomatoes as a garnish. This is light and tasty! I loved the ginger for a surprise in this bean salad! The amount of soy sauce did not over power the salad, and I enjoyed it!

Yummy. So easy and delicious just as written. Did not have carrots so skipped

DELISH. Didn't have time to shred carrots so I cut them into thin matchsticks and sauteed them with a bit of oil to soften them up. Quick and simple salad. Will be making it again for sure.
