Colourful Green Beans Salad

This is one of my “go to” salad during summertime to bring to picnics and potlucks. It’s fresh and peaches are a perfect addition for a summery taste. I’m attracted to colorful food that looks good on a plate (and photos of course! 😉 ). If this salad would be a type of music, it would definitely be a reggae one! 😉

Lift up your hearts with a smile
  Lift up your feet with a dance
  Lift up your spirits with a song
  Its family time, its family time, its family time

All you need:

  • 500 gr/ 1 lbs Green beans
  • 1 red pepper -grilled in oven
  • 1 yellow pepper -grilled in oven
  • 2 peaches
  • 2 cups of feta with olive oil, crushed garlic and dry herbs

Cook the green beans in boiling water until done, 15-20min. Then, put it in the fridge to let it cool down wile cooking the rest of the ingredients.

Place the red and yellow peppers in a baking pan in the oven at 200°C /400°F for 20 minutes or when the skin turns black . Turn them a few times. To take the skin off, you can place them in a bowl and put a cellophane paper on it and let it cool down for 10 minutes. The skin will then get off easily.

Mix the feta cheese, olive oil, crushed garlic and dry herbs together in a bowl and let it marinate.

Mix everything together.

Cut the peaches in small pieces and add them to the salad.

Peaches are a great source of vitamin C which is good for a healthy glowing skin and contain vitamin A, good for the eyes and heart. They’re rich in minerals like potassium to regulate blood pressure and iron. The fibers are good for the digestion. And moreover….they taste so sweet, who could resist a peach?! 😉

Let it cool down in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Buon appetito!

Share your favorite summer salad!
