Green Bean Salad

In Good News From a Far Country, Village Vista by Kristin Hammett0 Comments

Feta cheese is unexpectedly popular in South Africa. All the grocery stores carry it. Most carry multiple flavors! Even some fast food restaurants serve a Greek salad – with feta of course. While this simple, colorful salad isn’t a South African recipe, it could be. It is one my family requests often – even the kids.

Green Bean Salad 

1/2 C olive oil
1/4 C vinegar 
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 lbs green beans (I snap into pieces)
1 red onion (sliced)
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Steam beans 8 minutes. Plunge into cold water. Combine beans, onion, and cheese in bowl. Pour dressing over. Cover and chill 1 hour.
