Green Bean and Tommy-Toe Salad

This recipe was so fresh and seasonal, I chose to take it to a potluck where I knew the host was making all proteins and most guests would bring carbohydrates.  This healthy dish (nutrition below) really helped balance out the dining table of quail, salmon, Korean beef, and pasta salad. It is what a potluck is all about – random foods all brought together. Why not be the person to always bring the healthy dish? 
Fresh, Organic Green Beans from
Backyard Produce
·         1 pound fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
·         1 teaspoon salt
·         1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
·         3 tablespoons olive oil
·         1 clove garlic, pressed
·         1/4 cup parsley and oregano, chopped
Put trimmed green beans in a medium saucepan. Add just enough water to cover and bring to a boil.  Simmer until beans are crisp-tender (about 10 minutes.) 



Drain beans and allow to cool while prepping other ingredients. (about 5 minutes)
