Green Bean Salad with Feta Cheese is a super easy salad recipe that you can make the preparations a day ahead. Blanch the green beans a day before and top it with the dressing of your choice. Sprinkle some feta cheese on top, just before serving, for a yummy, filling, healthy meal.
Yes, you read that right! You can actually prepare this ahead because the green beans can be blanched the night before then stored in the fridge overnight.
I have very lightly sauteed it in olive oil, but you can just pile up the beans when ready to eat and serve.
Add the nutty peanuts and crumbled over the feta. And, Bingo!! What a lovely looking meal and which is just ready within minutes. This might not be the most favorite salad around but it scores a century in the flavor department and takes the humble green beans to a whole new level!
You can even saute it in butter and garlic. The whole house gets engulfed in the aroma of it that all your senses will be activated while making it.
