Delicious! I followed the instructions completely and wouldn't change a thing. I used cherry tomatoes but like Sydney Mike I would imagine fresh ones from the garden would really make this salad. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

We have green beans often & this is a nice new way to prepare them! Tomatoes fresh from the garden would really be exceptional here! With the ease of preparation & the great taste, what more could one want! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
