Very nice salad. The market didn't have French beans so I used a mixture of green and yellow beans. I also used only 3 tomatoes.I mixed all the ingredients together in one bowl rather than individual plates since not everyone made it to dinner. I would have like the dressing to have a bit more bite, but that's just a personal preference. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag.
This made a very nice salad along with some soup. I used leftover green beans, fingerling potatoes and cherry tomatoes. I added a little homemade french dressing that was leftover and it was great! Thanks!
