This green bean salad is made with feta cheese and tomatoes and is one of my favorite salads for a picnic or a barbeque. I make this amount for 2 or 3 people, but you can easily double or quadruple the recipe.

I made it with thinly sliced red onions and no feta cheese and it was delicious. Will do it with feta next for a change Read More

I cut the recipe down to one serving because I was using up leftover green beans and about 1/2 of a large tomato so this was perfect. It made a good amount for two side servings with a little left over. I didn't have white vinegar so just used regular balsamic also substituted red onion for the shallot and we had no feta but that would have been wonderful. Thank you! Read More

Great summer side dish. I did add a little basil from my garden at the last minute. Also next time I might try adding some candied pecans. But an awesome recipe that everyone enjoyed. Thanks. Read More

Perfect summer salad! Left out the shallots cause I did not have any at hand but will add them next time. I grated the garlic instead of mincing it - I prefer it grated in dressings Read More

So simple yet so good! My husband even raved about it. I used red onion instead of shallot and grape tomatoes as it's what I had on hand. Dressing is delicious... light and refreshing. I am going to make this with asparagus next. Read More
