Last week I picked up some beautiful beans and tomatoes at King’s Farm and Market in Edisto. I got the tomatoes because we eat them constantly, but I really just got the beans because they were pretty. I’m not really even so sure they are beans. They might be lima beans. I don’t know.
Anyway, to avoid letting them rot away in the refrigerator I decided to whip up a nice simple salad to take to work tomorrow.
Simple Bean Salad
Fresh green beans
Tomato, 1 chopped
Red wine vinegar
1. Wash the beans. Pop the ends off and boil in a pot of salted water for a few minutes. Remove and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
2. Chop tomato.
3. Mix everything together with olive oil, red wine vinegar and salt. Add pepper to taste.
That’s it. You could add other vegetables if you need to get rid of them or even some garlic or red onion for a kick. No rules. Just make what you like.
