On hot days like today, I try to get out early and search for treasures in my garden! Its fun and rewarding to lift a green leaf and find a bunch of green beans hanging out there, just waiting to be picked!
Add a few tomatoes some peppers (purple ana green today), basil and a quick dressing and voila! I made a salad for a quick lunch from picks in my garden! All that was left was to sprinkle it with some cheese crumbles (I happened to have some feta), grab a fork and enjoy!

4 each tomato, cherry
1/4 cup green beans, blanched and refreshed in cold water
1 Tbsp bell pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon basil, fresh, finely chopped
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon feta cheese, crumbled

1. Blanch beans in water for about 3 minutes until crisp tender. Immerse in ice bath and towel dry before adding to salad mix.

2. While beans are cooking, toss vegetables and basil together.

3. Add beans. in a separate bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour over veggies and mix to coat.

4. Transfer salad to plate. Sprinkle with feta and enjoy!
