Greek Green Beans
6 oz fresh green beans, trimmed + halved
1/4-1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced tomato
3-4 TBSP crumbled feta
3 TBSP quality extra virgin olive oil
1 TBSP white wine or champagne vinegar
1 clove garlic, smashed + minced
1/2 tsp fresh or dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dijon mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, parsley, oregano, dijon mustard, salt, and pepper and set aside to allow the flavors to meld.
Trim ends off green beans and cut in half, if desired.
Fill a medium pot with water and set to boil on high.
Set aside a medium bowl of ice water.
Once water is at a rolling boil, add green beans and cook for 3-5 minutes or until they reach your ideal tenderness.
Drain and immediately submerge beans in ice bath to halt the cooking process.
Combine green beans with red pepper and tomatoes and toss with dressing to coat.
Top with crumbled feta and fresh parsley to garnish.
