Green Bean and Feta Salad
By Philippe, Tucson CSA
1 CSA bag green or purple beans (approx. 1 lb)
1 hard boiled egg, peeled and crumbled
1/4 cup of feta, crumbled
Parsley or chives, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 small onion
1 teaspoon mustard
salt and pepper
Place all dressing ingredients in a food processor or chopper and blend until creamy.
Blanch the green beans whole for 2-3 minutes or until tender (up to 5 minutes if they are mature – taste a bean from time to time to check for tenderness). Drain and let cool. Cut the beans in 1 inch segments.
Toss together beans, hard boiled egg, feta and dressing.
Garnish with some chopped parsley or chopped chives if available.
Serve cool or at room temperature.
