Marinated Green Beans with Olives, Tomatoes, and Feta

Makes about 4 servings

 

1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

1 tomato, seeded and chopped

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

 

1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 (8 ounce) package crumbled feta

 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat and drop in the green beans; cook until slightly tender, but still crisp, 3 to 5 minutes

Immediately drain the green beans and plunge into ice water to stop the beans from cooking further

Drain the beans and set aside

In a mixing bowl, stir in the garlic, olives, tomatoes, vinegar, oregano, salt, and pepper

Add green beans

Toss together until beans are evenly coated

Chill before serving

Sprinkle feta cheese over the top

 

This recipe is best to be eaten fresh.  Leftovers are not as enjoyable as when it is first made.
