Green Bean Salad

This is a regular side dish at our house, goes great with chicken, fish or steak!

2 cups fresh green beans
1 cup chopped tomatoes ( I love using grape tomatoes halved)
1/4 cup red onion sliced thin
1/4 red wine vinegarette
1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled

To make the green beans crunchy, snap the ends then snap them in half. Bring water to a boil and toss the beans in for 3 minutes at a rapid boil. pour them into a strainer then shock them in a ice bath (bowl of ice cold water) Let them sit for about 3 minutes so they get cold quick. This helps them to maintain a bright green color!  Pour them in a bowl, add fresh tomatoes and onion and toss them with the dressing and top with feta. You can make this ahead and place in fridge. Serve it cold!
