Green Bean and Mozzarella Salad

Green Bean and Mozzarella Salad

If you’re looking for a really easy dish to take to your next family picnic or serve with dinner, look no more.  This dish is not only easy and delicious but it looks beautiful, too.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cut fresh green beans (2-inch pieces)
  • 6 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 block (8 ounces) mozzarella cheese, cubed
  • ½ cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh basil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

Place beans in a small saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to a boil; cook, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender.  Drain and rinse in cold water.

Place beans in a large salad bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients; gently toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.  Yield:  6-8 servings

Notes:

  • I used frozen green beans and cooked them in the microwave for about 6 minutes.
  • I used a 10-ounce package of grape tomatoes and cut each tomato in half.
  • Instead of fresh basil, I used 1 teaspoon of dried basil.
  • I only used a sprinkle of salt and pepper – definitely not the amount called for.
