Hello, It’s Celeste from The Whole Serving, and I’m back with a salad that’s sure to add some spice to your summer.

I’ve been in a salad kick lately, the other day I saw some fresh green beans and I just had to grab a bag.

Growing up my Mom always used canned green beans, the one with the big giant on the can, you know the one I’m talking about. Out of habit I continued to eat the out if a can.

When my daughter was a toddler (she’s 21 now), I would give her green beans out of the can and she wouldn’t eat them, but if I prepared fresh green beans she would eat them. From that day forward I have always purchased and prepared fresh green beans.

Today I’m sharing one of our favorite green bean salads that is super easy to make.

Put some spice in your summer with this Spicy Green Bean Salad, filled with tender-crisp green beans, juicy cherry tomatoes, wrapped in garlic and spice of sriracha. When making this salad you can roast the green beans in the oven or prepare them stove-top in a sauté pan until they are tender, about 10 minutes in a 450 degree oven and 7 to 8 minutes on the stove-top. Just be sure not to over-cook making them too soft.

These tender crisp green beans are tossed with fresh tomatoes, onions and served on a big bed of arugula, sprinkled with soft goat cheese and pine nuts.

I used a simple balsamic glaze to dress the salad. So delicious!

Ingredients

1 lb. fresh green beans washed, dried and cut diagonally into 2 inch pieces

½ teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons, sriracha hot sauce (more if you like it really hot)

2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup sliced red onions

1 bag of arugula greens

½ cup goat cheese

1/3 cup pine nuts

balsamic glaze (I purchased mine from Trader Joe’s)
