Donna's Green Bean and Feta Cheese Salad

This salad is beautiful, elegant and easy. The combination of green beans, red onions, tomatoes, and feta cheese with a fresh mint dressing is fantastic.

1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans

1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped

1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped

1 cup (4 ounces) low-fat seasoned feta cheese, crumbled

Dressing

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup chopped fresh mint

In a medium saucepan, cook beans in boiling water until crisp-tender. Chill under cold running water. Drain well. In a large bowl, combine beans, onions, tomato, cucumber, and feta cheese. In a small jar, combine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and mint. Shake well. When ready to serve, add to bean mixture and gently stir until well blended.

Note: There are a variety of seasoned feta cheeses available. This recipe is excellent with the Mediterranean flavor which is a blend of basil and sun dried tomatoes.
