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.


  • 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


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


  • 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.
