Basil Green Beans and Cherry Tomatoes

Inspiration:
The Saint Paul Farmers' Market Cookbook
as well as green beans, basil, fresh garlic, and tomatoes from our CSA

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups of green beans. steamed and cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 2 cups red and gold cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped

Instructions:
  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Serve hot or cold.

My Notes:
It's great to find a recipe that uses all CSA ingredients except for olive oil, salt and pepper :)
I substituted two medium tomatoes for the cherry tomatoes.
