Spicy-Green-Bean-Salad-with-FetaServes 4

Ingredients 

400 g (1 lb) fresh green beans, strings removed, ends snapped or cut off

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

2 tbsp lime juice or white vinegar

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

3/4 cup packed, chopped coriander

1/3 cup bottled, pickled jalapeno chilli peppers, sliced

1/3 cup chopped red onion

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 avocado, sliced or cut into 25 mm long pieces

1 medium tomato, cut into 8 wedges, or a cup of halved cherry tomatoes

Method 

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and simmer until just crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the beans and run cold water over them to cool them quickly. Drain completely. 

Place beans in a large bowl. Gently mix in the lime juice or vinegar, olive oil, 1/4 cup onion, sliced pickled jalapenos, sea salt, oregano and coriander (cilantro). Let sit for half an hour.

When ready to serve, gently mix in the chopped red onion and cheese.  Serve the avocado slices and tomato wedges on the side or mixed into the salad.
