  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. sherry vinegar
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  • ½ cup (2 oz.) crumbled feta cheese


  1. Cook beans in boiling water until crisp-tender (5 minutes). Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Combine the tomato and next 4 ingredients (tomato through pepper) in a bowl.
  3. Divide the beans evenly among 8 plates. Spoon 1/4 cup tomato mixture over the beans. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sliced basil and 1 tablespoon cheese.
