Nice salad using all ingredients from my CSA farm. I used a pomegranate vinegar which added just a hint of sweetness, and, small dice red onion. Mixed up red & yellow heirlooms & cherry tomatoes giving it even more eye appeal.

I was able to find both fresh wax beans and green beans, we unfornately are still not receiving fresh tomoatoes yet, but a great little salad, liked the feta cheese.

I love green beans, and this is a refreshing way to serve them. Fresh wax beans are rarely available in my area, so I used all green beans. Thanks for the recipe.
