I’m a BIG fan of feta cheese. I know it totally grosses some people out, and boy do I feel sorry for those people. Come to the other side – you have no idea what you’re missing!
I threw this together when I realized I had some green beans I needed to use up. Simple, easy, delicious. I think that description works.
These measurements are very approximate! As I’ve said before, many times I don’t measure when cooking, but I know I have to give you a guideline. So, taste as you go and use the amounts you like/need.
Green Bean and Feta Salad
2 cups green beans, steamed (don’t overcook – leave some crunch) and cooled
3/4 cup feta, cut into bite size chunks (or crumbled)
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 plum tomato, cut into bite size chunks
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (red wine vinegar would be fine, too)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Combine beans, feta, onion and tomato in a bowl. Add oil and vinegar, then seasonings, tasting along the way. Stir and serve, or keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
