Summer Green Bean and Tomato Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2-3 lbs of green beans, ends trimmed off
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook the green beans in salted boiling water until just tender.Drain well. If you like them crisper be sure to drain and put the beans into ice water to stop the cooking process then drain well. If you like them a little more cooked {like all my older Italian family members} then skip the ice bath.
  2. Toss together the green beans, red onion and tomatoes.
  3. In a mason jar or blender mix together the red wine vinegar, olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix up until well combined and pour enough over the salad just to coat.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
