Green bean and Cucumber Salad

This is a refreshing summer salad that my grandmother and then my mother always prepared. It is one of my favorites.

From your share:
Green beans
From your garden:
Summer Savory, basil or oregano

From your kitchen:
Red onion
Black olives
Red wine vinegar
Olive oil

Wash and trim the green beans, place in a steamer over water, and sprinkle with salt

Cover the pan and allow the beans to steam until fork tender.


Move the beans into a bowl. Add thinly sliced red onion, thin slices of halved and seeded cucumber and black olives.

Dress with red wine vinegar, olive oil and some chopped summer savory, basil, or oregano to taste. Allow the salad to chill for a few hours for flavors to blend.
