Green bean salad

5 stars from 1 rating of Green bean salad

Such a simple side salad for a hot summers day, this is a favourite of mine. It is very similar to the 'alternative potato salad' recipe, only with green beans! We had this quite a lot with home made meatballs and boiled potatoes with my grandparents.

Cook Time

  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Cook time: 10 min
  • Ready in: 15 min
  • Yields: Serves 4 as a side dish


  • 200g French/Green beans
  • 1 Onion, Finely chopped
  • Balsamic or malt vinegar
  • olive oil


  1. Trim the ends from your beans and give them a good rinse.
  2. Steam the beans for 10 minutes either in a steamer or a colander over a saucepan.
  3. Add the beans to a bowl, with the chopped onion.
  4. Add vinegar and olive oil to taste.
