Fresh Tomato & Bean Salad
In my opinion, one of the main reasons to grow vegetables is because you like to EAT vegetables! Garden fresh veggies are nothing like what you buy from the store.
I trimmed the beans (a nice mix of green, wax, and Romano beans) and blanched them. Then I washed the cherry tomatoes (yes, they are supposed to be yellow) and sliced them in half. I had picked a few herbs from the garden as well, although I wasn’t sure which ones I was going to use. I ended up using some fennel and basil. I chopped the herbs very fine, and tossed them in.
The dressing for the salad was a simple viniagrette of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a dash of sugar.
