Simple and tasty: Green Bean and Tomato Salad
Author: YourLifeChoices
Green Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad

Summer is here and salads are in high demand.  This super salad, by Australia’s iconic Italian-born chef, Stefano de Pieri, is simple and delicious.  Four ingredients and you’re there, and it makes the most of summer beans and sweet cherry tomatoes.  Serve it with your favourite bbq or roast meats or for a lighter meal, just add some tinned tuna and crumbled feta.

Ingredients

500g small green beans, trimmed

2 punnets cherry tomatoes, halved

1 garlic clove, shaved at the last minute

Extra-virgin olive oil

Salt flakes

Method

Cook the beans in plenty of boiling water, until just tender, drain well and plunge into cold water to cool.  Place the beans in a large bowl with all the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.

Recipe taken from Modern Italian Food by Stefano de Pieri. Stefano learnt to cook as a child at his mother's elbow in the family farmhouse in the north of Italy. This early grounding has instilled in him a love of delectable and robust dishes based on the bounty of the season, a practice he still follows today when cooking in his adopted homeland of Australia. Modern Italian Food offers recipes with roots from the Old World into the New: from the Treviso dishes Stefano’s family used to cook in Italy, to the recipes that he has developed using Australian regional produce. Food, for him, is about conviviality and hospitality, to be made and consumed with immense enjoyment and in the company of family and friends.

    Judging by the photo, there's more ingredients than listed. It looks like parsley, and some indistinguishable item, maybe nuts? It's not the first time I've noticed this in YLC recipes. It looks like they nick unrelated photos and hope no one will notice!
