I like eating salad but I get board of it after awhile. I find that sometimes I don't feel as full as I would like or I need more of a crunch! Green beans are a very good source of minerals and a great lettuce replacement. This salad is quiet easy to make and can easily be taken to work for a healthy lunch option. ENJOY!
Yields One Portion
1-2 Handfuls of Green Beans - Ends taken off
1 to 2 Tomatos - Chopped
Half a small Red Onions - Chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Steam the green beans for 5 minutes, drain and add to cold ice water bath to stop them from cooking.
While the green beans are steaming add the tomatoes and red onions to a flat-ish bowl so that they can sit and slightly soak in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Next addsome salt and pepper stir it in and let it continue to sit and marinate.
Drain green beans and add into bowl with tomatoes and onions. Mix and serve.
