Green Bean & Tomato Salad with Basil
5 oz green beans
3 ripe tomatoes
1 garlic clove, minced
3 T chopped basil leaves or 1 t dried
3 T vegetable juice (I used water left from steaming green beans)
3/8 t salt
1/8 t pepper
Trim ends from green beans and cut into 1-1.5 in lengths. Cook in a
saucepan of boiling salted water or steam until just tender, 3-5 minutes.
Add tomatoes to pan during last 10-20 sec of cooking to loosen skins.
Peel, seed, and dice tomatoes. In a bowl, combine green beans and
tomatoes with garlic, basil, and vegetable juice. Season with salt and
Toss gently. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
