Fresh Green Bean Salad with Tomatoes Feta and Toasted Walnuts

We have green beans coming off the vines daily. I have processed many packages for future meals. There has even been a second planting started. Today instead of preparing this picking for the freezer, I decided to make a refreshing salad.


This is simple, even the blanching step is a snap. Well OK, it is a snap now that we have an ice maker, because to be honest the blanching and chilling step would have been a reason to skip making this salad in previous times. And to think I thought I did not need an ice maker..................

Fresh Green Bean Salad with Tomatoes, Feta, and Toasted Walnuts
inspired from: Mel's Kitchen Cafe

1 pound fresh green beans - you could use more there is plenty of dressing, but it was a "picking" that day
1 c halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1 T minced onion

1/4 c oil - I used avocado oil
3 T red wine vinegar
1/8 t garlic salt
1/8 t salt - additional salt for blanching
fresh ground pepper to taste
1/4 t sugar
1/4 t prepared mustard - I used plain old deli style yellow

1/4 -1/2 c Feta cheese crumbles - we used 1/2 c
1/4 - 1/2 c broken toasted walnut pieces - we used 1/2 c

Blanching process:
Bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil.
Add 1 T salt.
Set timer for 5 minutes.


Add green beans, recover with a lid.
Stand and watch pot, as soon as a rolling boil is reached, remove lid.


Let boil, stirring to keep beans moving.
When timer sounds, drain.


Cover beans with ice and cold water to chill quickly.


When chilled, drain well

Assemble the salad:
Combine dressing ingredients in a large bowl, add tomatoes, stir to coat the tomatoes with dressing.

Add green beans, combine well.

Add Feta, stir on more time. Arrange on serving platter, scatter walnut pieces over the top.


Serves 4 - 6

Enjoy!

  1. This looks a fabulous summer salad. I sure wish green beans were at the farmers' market already. I have to wait a few more weeks.

    1. I have also made with with thawed beans from our garden, and while not quite as crispy, it was just as delicious!
