a Hearty Bean salad

Bean Salad

I don’t know if this is an age thing, but somehow Valentine’s day is getting more enjoyable as the years go by….Somebody should have told me years ago that being in your 30’s is far better than being in your 20’s. Let’s hope the 40’s is even better!

Well since I’m sharing my son’s Valentine chocolates tonight I should make up for it with a healthy salad tomorrow, you know, just to balance things out. šŸ˜‰

If you love beans you will love this salad.


400 g green beans

1 x tin mixed beans

1/3 cup rice vinegar

5 tbs sugar

salt and pepper to taste

1 wheel of feta cheese

Cook the green beans in salt water till soft, strain, cut in half and set aside.

Strain all the water from the tin of beans and add to salad bowl.

Add the green beans to the mix beans and season with salt and pepper.

Mix the sugar with the vinegar in a sauce pan and simmer for a few minutes, making sure that all the sugar have dissolve.

pour hot vinegar mixture over your salad.

Assemble salad in glass containers also adding some of the vinaigretteĀ in each container. Divide the feta cheese amongst the containers and add last.

refriderateĀ and enjoy later.
