Haricots Verts in Plum Tomatoes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This dish looks impressive but it's very easy to prepare, so it's great for a dinner party! This is a great recipe for those of you who grow your own tomatoes and green beans. It makes more dressing than you'll need for the tomato/green bean combo....I use the extra dressing the next night on our salad.

Very tasty. I only made 2 tomatoes but made the full amount of dressing, it was great on salad the next day. So easy, yet looks great. I think I'll take this to the next potluck we go to. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Zaar Tag 2005
