Green Bean & Tomato Salad

A super simple salad best made with lovely fresh ingredients. Make sure the beans are crisp and the tomatoes nice and ripe. I used mixed olives here, but both Kalamata and/or Spanish olives work well. Serve as a side at home or when entertaining, or as a colourful lunch with some nice crunchy bread. This is a very quick and easy salad that can be thrown together at the last minute but is both tasty and good to look at.

Preparation time: 5mins
Serves 4 (as a side)

  • 250g (9 oz) fresh green beans
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes cut into wedges
  • 100g (3½ oz) olives
  • 1 tbs fresh parsley, roughly chopped

for the dressing

  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2½ tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp brown sugar

Top and tail the beans and steam them for 2-3 minutes only; remove from heat and rinse under cold water.

Toss the beans, tomatoes and olives with the parsley and freshly cracked black pepper in a large bowl.

Combine the vinegar and oil with the sugar and a pinch of salt.

Pour the dressing over the salad and gently toss through.

Serve as a side or for a light meal with crunchy bread.
