We had a bunch of green beans from our neighbors garden and I thought it would be nice to make a green bean salad, Zo beat me to it! I walked in the kitchen and asked what she was cooking and she said, "a Green Bean Salad." She was making it exactly how I was thinking about making one so I started making a main course to go with it. I hope you enjoy this salad!

1 1/4lb fresh Green beans (washed, stems removed)
1 1/2 vine tomatoes (chopped)
1/2 of a white sweet onion (chopped)
2 yellow vine sweet mini pepper (chopped)

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper medley (to taste)

In a large stock pot bring 1 quart of water to a rolling boil over high heat. Add beans and cook for 5-6 minutes (making sure to keep beans crisp.) Strain and let cool for 10 minutes.

Whisk together your dressing in a small mixing bowl.

Add all ingredients and dressing to a sealable container and shake well. Place in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes to chill and shake in container before serving.
