READY IN: 5hrs
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

This is great to use up the green beans from your summer's crop, it is very good also! Plan ahead, this needs to chill for minimum of 5 hours. Prep time includes chilling time.

This has a nice flavor and stays nice a fresh for quite a long time. I didn't like that once refrigerated the vinaigrette kinda gelled which made it unappitizing. I used red onions. If I make it again I'll add some herbs like oregano. Made for Zaar Tag.
