Green Bean and Tomato Salad

Here's an easy and delicious way to combine some of your summer CSA veggies. Ingredients from your CSA share/the farm: string beans, tomatoes, basil.


  • 1 pound string beans

  • 6 ripe tomatoes

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped shallots or green onions

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 4 tablespoons coarsely chopped basil


Trim ends of beans and leave them whole.

Drop beans into a saucepan with salted boiling water. Cook until crisp tender, about 3 to 5 minutes according to the size of the beans. Do not overcook. Drain and let cool.

Cut away the core of each tomato, and cut it into wedges.

In a salad bowl, add mustard, vinegar, shallots, garlic, oil, salt and pepper and blend with a wire whisk. Add beans and tomatoes, toss well. Sprinkle with basil.
