Green Bean Salad Recipe
This green bean salad recipe is one of my favorite summer salads.
It is a very simple recipe.
Just boil up some green and/or yellow beans and while they are boiling mix together this light and savory vinaigrette.
In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, vegetable stock or water, salt, cayenne pepper, dill, parsley and mustard. Mix all ingredients together well. Pour the dressing over the green beans and toss to coat. Chill for 1 hour before serving.

Did You Know?...
I add the vinaigrette while the beans are still hot.
That way the onions soften a bit and the vinaigrette soaks into the beans, making them really flavorful.
Just chill the salad for an hour or two before serving and that's it.
It is an easy make ahead salad too. It can easily be made a day or even two before serving.
Although we may think of this as a predominantly favorite summer salad recipe, and it is great for picnics and barbecues, it works really well on a buffet table at any time of year.
