Green Bean Salad
It's hot and for the rest of the summer we're in salad mode, but the same ol' garden salad is starting to bore us. Toss together this easy and delicious Green Bean Salad for a nice break from your hom-hum salad or side dish. Crisp green beans tossed with bacon, feta and a savory dressing, perfect for livening up your next meal.
