Green Bean Salad.

December 10, 2010 by Carolina

Who says a salad has to have lettuce? I’ve been eating a lot of salads lately & decided to mix it up a bit by using green beans as the base instead of lettuce. After purchasing beautiful organic produce & smoked mozzarella this salad was born. This was my first time trying smoked mozzarella & I’ve got to say, I really liked it. The smokeyness was a nice touch without overpowering the cheese. Lets get cooking!


1 Bag of Green Beans, cooked

1 Small Tomato, chopped

1/2 Small White Onion, chopped

1 TBS Garlic, minced

1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

2 TBS Sesame Oil (you can also use Olive Oil)

3 Slices Fresh Smoked Mozzarella, diced

Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Sea Salt, to taste

In a pan, bring water to boil & follow green bean package instructions. Drain green beans & place back in the pan. Add the tomato, onion, garlic, apple cider vinegar, oil, salt & pepper & toss. Top with smoked mozzarella.

Keeping it simple really lets the ingredients shine. Hope you enjoy this salad as much as I did. Buen provecho!
