Green beans and tomato salad
In late summer the garden yields buckets of beans some of which end up in green beans and tomato salad with a creamy cheese dressing.
With high yielding plants mine green beans you really have to be inventive to get through the harvest before the end of the season. That’s how I discovered this green beans and tomato salad. By blending a few beans with the cheese, the dressing becomes extra creamy. Tiny flecks of speck that can be substituted with pancetta or mild bacon add umami and salt to the salad bowl. And the inimitable, mild and tasty Tropea onion provides a fresh acidity and helps to balance the flavours.
