Cooking with Diane: Summer Green Bean Salad
My garden veggies are growing in leaps and bounds, so I decided to find a recipe to use some of them. This is a healthy, cool summer salad that goes great with any meat you choose.
Summer Green Bean Salad
1 pound of fresh green beans
½ medium red onion (sliced thin)
1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
½ cup fresh basil (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
salt & pepper to taste
1 package of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix(follow directions on package to make dressing for salad)
Juice of one lemon
Cook green beans about 20 minutes until semi firm. Drain place in large salad bowl, add rest of veggies, pour dressing over salad and chill 1 hour before serving.
