I have made this often - it's one of those perfect summer dishes! It's even better when everything comes fresh from your own garden - one of those tastes I look forward to!

Perfect veggie dish for the fresh green beans and yellow cherry tomatoes I had from the farmer's market. I found the dressing a tad too salty, but that it easy to fix for the next time. This will certainly become a summer favorite in our house.

Haven't made this recipe recently, but I have made often in the past. Very easy and flavorful.
