An Italian-inspired Green Beans Tomato Salad with white onions, garlic, and a simple balsamic vinaigrette, this salad is perfect light dinner or side dish.
I have a feeling we have been eating only tomatoes this past couple of weeks. I am seriously running out of ideas to make them 😛 Just kidding, ideas I have plenty, it’s more the time I am lacking to make everything I’d want to make.
Since it has been hot since I can remember, we’re just eating salads all days long. Tomato salads. Green beans salads. Plain old green lettuce salad. Cucumber. Cabbage. Lettuce and potatoes. You name it, we have eaten it this past summer. We do throw in the occasional soup, smoothie, or burger, but other than that, it’s mostly salads.
The days are getting shorter now and the mornings just a bit colder, but we still have a fridge full of tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchinis. Can one eat too much of it?
So in trying to cope with the harvest, I’ve made this Italian-style Green Beans Tomato Salad, with green beans, delicious tomatoes, a delicate white onion and some crushed garlic, topped with salt, pepper, and an easy balsamic vinaigrette. Doesn’t it just call Italy to you? So simple, so easy to make, and only fresh seasonal ingredients.
