Green Beans Marinated in Tomato Vinaigrette

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Garlic Chick

I made this recently and thought it was delicious! I did not see anything exactly like it on Recipe Zaar so I decided to post it. This was originally from "Beat That" Cookbook by Ann Hodgman. I found it almost better the next day - just bring it to room temperature before serving.

We loved this quick, easy and very flavorful side dish. The tomato vinaigrette was delicious! I used olive oil in place of the corn oil, and I added a generous handful of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. We, too, liked it better the next day, but we also preferred it chilled rather than at room temperature. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!
