Green bean & cherry tomato sesame salad

Vegan Green Bean & Cherry Tomato Salad

This salad is a great side dish to compliment any main dish and is not only colourful and appealing to the eye, it is nutritious.

Ingredients

1 x 500g frozen green beans:  cook in boiling salted water for 8 minutes until tender and then immediately strain and put into a bowl of iced water (this stops the cooking process and helps keep the colour vibrant)
4 cups of cherry tomatoes (try the seasonal coloured tomatoes now in the shops.  They are very tasty and sweet)

Method

  1. Mix the beans and tomatoes together in a big salad bowl and serve with a simply lemon dressing.

Simply Lemon Dressing

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp toasted white sesame seeds
Salt & pepper to taste
