LUNCHBOX IDEAS :: Cold Green Bean Salad

Happy Monday!  I'm back this week with a new recipe I've been meaning to share for a while.  It's just been so busy lately. We have four more days of school before summer!  It's going to be a different summer but I'm really looking forward to it.  

This is a very simple salad with seasonal ingredients that I know you will love.  You can't beat its simplicity.  I find that green beans are usually more popular too in salad form. 

Here's what you need to make this salad at home:

green beans (24 oz)
1.5 cups cherry tomatoes
fingerling potatoes (about 15)
salt, pepper
lemon, olive oil

Wash and cut the potatoes in half.  Boil in water until tender.  Make sure you don't overcook them.  Wash the green beans, slice them in 1/2 and cut the ends off.  Add to the potatoes and cook for about 7 minutes until tender.  Again, don't overcook them.  

Remove potatoes and green beans from the stove.  Drain and rinse in cold water.  Add to bowl.  Wash and dice the cherry tomatoes in half.  Add to the bowl with the potatoes and green beans.  Mix well.  Season with salt.  Drizzle olive oil and the juice of 1/2 lemon.  Mix well.  Enjoy!

This salad would be perfect for a backyard cookout!  We have started early this year with our patio dining and I'm not mad about it!
