Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
Green Beans, 4 cup
Feta Cheese, 3 oz
Garlic, 3 clove
Lemon Juice, from 1 lemon
Peppers, sweet, red, fresh, 1 medium
Red Ripe Tomatoes, 1 cup cherry tomatoes
Parsley, .67 cup
Louisiana Hot Sauce, 1 tbsp
Kalamata Olives, black pitted 4 olives, 2 serving
Scallions, raw, 3 medium
Trim the beans and steam them to your desired tenderness.
While they're cooking, chop the parsley, onions, tomatoes, peppers and olives. Crumble the feta.
Add the mustard, hot sauce and lemon juice to the olive oil & garlic.
Put the hot beans into the oil & lemon juice mixture. Toss them till they are cooled and coated with the dressing. Add the veggies, and add the feta when the beans are fairly cool.
I like to use jalapeno sauce for heat, but cayenne is also good. You can use whatever kind of mustard you like: sweet, hot or even powdered. Flat-leaf parsley is delicious in this recipe, and so is finely chopped celery. You can add whatever veggies you like, but I really recommend the red peppers and tomatoes because their colour, texture and flavour complement the beans. You can use pickles or capers instead of olives if you prefer. It only needs salt if you don't use feta cheese. I really recommend the feta; other cheeses won't make it nearly as delicious.
If you add some tuna or canned beans, this is a wonderful one-dish meal. It keeps well, but tastes best if eaten within four days.
