1 1/2 pounds
fresh green beans
sweet onion, peeled
rice wine vinegar
apple cider vinegar
ground black pepper to taste
feta cheese, crumbled
Absolutey amazing! I did make a slight modification though. I used 1/4 C ea. red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and cider vinegar. I just eyeballed the amount of oil, but I know I didnt use 1/3 of a cup, thats too much. I probably went a little heavier on the garlic and feta too. I just put my onions in fresh, not with the hot water over them. Going to try with red onions next time. Ive made this twice in the past week and it doesn't stay around long!
I loved the flavors and would make it again but you do need to cut the dressing in half and it is a good idea to drain excess the next day if you have any left over. The next day the flavors are even better.
A good salad, but I must say the dressing is very strong and pungent. Have mints handy!!
Very good. I leave the beans whole and omit the feta. We eat the beans like french fries next to a sandwich or burger. Dressing is tasty. There was a good bit of dressing left over and I reused it on another batch that were just as good. Have also substitued balsamic vinegar for the apple cider vinegar with positive results. My new favorite way to eat green beans.
I was surprised at how well this salad came out. The only thing is that the beans kinda turned yellowish after they sat in the dressing (the photo was taken right after dressing was poured on top).
I cut the oil measurement in half and used half balsamic vinegar -- it got rave reviews from everyone. Is quick, easy and gets better the next day.
Liked the flavor. My husband thought it was a four star dish but plans to revisit it in the morning and thinks it will become a 5-star after the flavors meld more. Didn't have any dressing problems and followed the recipe exactly; used a 16-ounce bag of frozen green beans and added a little bit more feta so maybe the feta absorbed some of the dressing.
My good friend made this with our dinner last night -- it was SO yummy! He used olive oil instead of canola and added grape tomatoes. I will definitely make this.
