Green Bean & Tomato Salad

I think green beans just may be my favourite veggie! For a long time, it was broccoli, but I’ve been using green beans more in recipes and I can’t get enough of them!

I discovered this simple recipe in Sobey’s free magazine, Inspired. I love how quick it is to whip up for a side dish. If you are having a barbecue, this would be a great addition. It’s nutritious, flavourful and fresh.

June seems to be the best month to buy local green beans in our area. I bought organic green beans that were already trimmed and triple washed at the grocery store. There’s slim pickins’ right now for green beans at our grocery store. Guess I’m about a month to late! Oh well, the salad still was amazing!
