This green beans, tomato and Feta salad uses just 5 simple ingredients, and you can guess the first 3 just by the name of the salad 🙂 The ingredients are: (1) green beans, (2) cherry tomatoes, (3) Feta cheese, (4) extra-virgin olive oil and (5) balsamic vinegar. Plus salt and pepper to taste 🙂 Simple everyday ingredients, amazing flavor and this salad is good for you too!
Making this Italian green bean salad is really easy. First you need to cook green beans using a method of your choice (the easiest way is to just microwave them for 5 minutes, or if you own an Instant Pot, it’s great for steaming green beans too). Check out my cooking instructions for microwave green beans or Instant Pot green beans.
Once the green beans are cooked, just mixed them with cherry tomato halves and Feta cheese crumbles, then dress with extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar and add salt and pepper to taste. Delicious!
Another awesome thing about this green bean salad is that it can be made a day or two ahead. The reason why I use cherry tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes in many of my salad recipes is that cherry tomatoes stay fresh longer. Regular tomatoes get mushy pretty quickly, while cherry tomatoes remain tasty even when they are cut in half and refrigerated. I love opening the refrigerator and having this salad waiting for me! So if the recipe portion is too big for you, don’t hesitate to make it all as this salad makes great leftovers!
