    Simply Chris's Note:

    I found this recipe in Cooking Light a couple years ago. My family loves it and I make it all year long, not just in the summer. In a pinch, I have even made this using Trader Joe's frozen baby french green beans. This salad is always a big hit. Try to use a good quality red wine vinegar, like a cabernet vinegar, it really makes a difference.

      Very nice oil & vinegar side dish/salad! Fresh and light. We were looking for a recipe to use today's bean and cherry tomato harvest from the garden. Didn't have shallots on hand, so we used minced yellow onion. It was fine. Made very good next day left-overs, served cold. Cooking Light is a great resource--almost always love their recipes. Thanks so much for sharing, Simply Chris. (Photo uploaded.)

      We enjoyed this salad at room temperature. It's quite good made with fresh summertime produce. I didn't have a quality red wine vinegar but did have a nice balsamic so I used that.
