Greek Grean Bean Salad

When green beans ripen in the garden, there are more than I can eat, so I made this Greek green bean salad for a potluck.

This zesty greek green bean salad is easy to make, and will keep in the refrigerator for a few days for a quick meal or snack. Careful not to overcook the green beans, keep them crispy to the bite.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans
  • ½ red bell pepper
  • 1 tomato
  • ½ small red onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeño
  • ¼ cup feta, crumbled
  •  2 tablespoons parsley, minced

The Dressing

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, squeezed from ½ lime
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon brown mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon peper

Directions

  1. Squeeze the lime. I like to use this simple glass juicer.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients together. Set aside.
  3. Trim green beans and cut into 1 ½ inch lengths. Place on a steamer in a pot, and steam until tender but still crisp, about 9 minutes. Remove from pam and rinse under cold water or place in an ice bath to prevent further cooking.
