Summer Green Bean Tomato Salad

Sharon Palmer

This vegan-friendly, gluten-free Summer Green Bean Tomato Salad recipe is pure summer. It celebrates all of the ripe, abundance of just harvested green beans and vine-ripened tomatoes—fresh from your garden, CSA, farmers market or neighborhood grocer. You can whip it up in mere minutes, and serve it at room temperature or chilled as an accompaniment for a warm weather dinner or picnic.

In my vegetable garden, where that “ugly” tomato came from; just love the unusual shapes and sizes that nature bestows upon us.
