The preparation is very easy for this recipe, I found that when you boil the green beans stir about 2 minutes so they all cook evenly and for better flavor let the ingredients marinade together for at least an hour before serving.
Here's the recipe and ingredient list:
1 pound green bean
1/2 sliced Walla Walla sweet onion (sliced thin)
1/4 cup feta cheese (optional)
1 large tomato or small container of cherry tomatoes
For fresh herb garnish you can use basil, thyme or chives (really anything you want)
Boil in a large pot of salted water approx 6 to 7 minutes, be sure to stir so they cook evenly. Cook until they are tender-crisp. Drain and plunge in ice bath. Add onion and tomato.
To make marinade:
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons White Wine vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 Tablespoon fresh chopped basil or whatever herb you are using
1 clove garlic
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Whisk together, add to green bean mixture, toss well, refrigerate. To serve: add feta cheese and fresh basil. Enjoy!

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
