Caulifower and Green Bean Salad

DSC_0193

Nothing like a medly of cauliflower, green beans and cherry tomatoes = great colors and flavors in ten short minutes.

I cheated ….. I microwaved the cauliflower (3 minutes) and the green beans (5 minutes), pre-washed, cut and in less than 10 minutes, salad was ready. Sometimes we need to think quick on our feet when the kitchen is too hot to cook! The vegetables were perfect and another way to get through these hot summer days! Before long, we’ll start complaining about the cold right!

When I was ready to plate, I added a handful of cherry tomatoes that were on my kitchen counter (I like my tomatoes at room temperature) – the sweetness really comes out!

Add extra virgin olive oil, a splash of red wine vinegar. Add salt and pepper (to taste) and 1 clove garlic thinly chopped. Mix and serve with your favorite meat or fish. I served with oven roasted chicken ….. and a nice bottle of chilled Rosé.

enjoy!
