Green Bean Salad

This tasty salad was introduced into our family by my sister Jen. It is a most unusual treatment of green beans. We are used to them being cooked and served hot. This salad, with a taste of Mediterranean flavours will be welcomed by your family and guests. It is fantastic to travel with and have with a cold chicken salad or make a meal on its own with crusty warm bread


  • 500g fresh green beans, blanched
  • 100g mushrooms finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 tabs toasted pine nuts
  • 2 tabs grated parmesan cheese


  • 2 tabs olive oil
  • 2 tabs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teas sugar
  • salt and pepper


Place salad vegetables in a bowl. Place dressing ingredients into a glass jar and place the lid on. Shake dressing in jar vigorously and pour over salad vegetables in bowl. Add pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese and toss to combine. Serve and Enjoy.
