Italian Green Bean and Tomato Salad Recipe

Friday, April 22, 2016
The dressing on this makes these beans super delicious. You can add as much as you like to taste. Perfect spring or summer salad. Add some garlic bread and a glass of vino and you have a great little lunch for my dieting friends and this is so healthy! Add whatever other vegetables you like. I will give you some suggestions below.

Cubed plum tomatoes or vine ripe tomatoes
Extra Virgin olive oil
Freshly cleaned and steamed green beans keep warm
Salt, pepper
Granulated garlic
Good grade Balsamic vinegar (mine is 18 year aged)
pinch of cayenne to taste
Grated cheese 

Optional additions that go great in this salad: sliced boiled eggs, chickpeas, sliced olives, feta cheese, mozzarella balls, crumbled bacon, any kind of cold cut meats, cubed provolone, sliced mushrooms, chopped broccoli or cauliflower, grilled eggplant or zucchini, croutons.

Place the beans in a bowl, top with cubed tomatoes ( or whatever else you like). Sprinkle with herbs and spices to taste. Drizzle with EVOO and Balsamic to taste. Sprinkle with grated cheese.  This is good cold or warm.


  1. Simple and delicious, Claudia. I love this kind of dish.

  2. Sounds good with the warm green beans and lots of garlic! Yum!
