Lighten Up With This Green Bean, Tomato & Feta Salad Recipe

This green bean and tomato salad is always a hit with my family and at potluck suppers. I serve it as a side or even as a main dish when we want to go vegetarian or have a light lunch. The recipe measurements are approximate. If you have more beans or more tomatoes, use them! It will still taste good.

You’ll need:

  • fresh green beans (1-2 pounds)
  • fresh tomatoes, large or cherry size (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • Italian salad dressing, to taste

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Snap or cut your green beans into 1- to 2-inch pieces. Steam or microwave them until they are cooked, but still a bit “crisp” to bite. Place them in a large mixing bowl and chill.
  2. Cut your tomatoes into bite-size chunks. Add them to the large bowl with beans.
  3. Sprinkle in the feta and sliced almonds. Mix well.
  4. Add the dressing. Chill the salad and serve. You may want to add a bit of extra dressing just before you serve.

Made this last night, Stephanie Mallory , and it's so easy and good! Eating the leftovers for lunch today. I boiled my green beans for just a few minutes, then rinsed them with cold water. I used balsamic salad dressing because we were out of my favorite Olive Garden Italian dressing. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing!
