Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

You’ll never look at green beans again without thinking of this spectacular Mediterranean style green bean salad. There’s nothing ho-hum about this salad!

Bean salad, yawn….Big deal, huh? Usually a bunch of cold canned beans with a sour vinegar dressing, it may be called three-bean salad, or five-bean salad or whatever. It’s often a cafeteria main-stay, because it keeps forever. Or maybe it lasts forever because nobody eats it.

Well, wake up! This salad is a far cry from the usual. With eye-popping flavor, Mediterranean green bean salad is so fantastic, you’ll want to eat it every day.

Crisp, bright green beans, briny burgundy-colored kalamata olives, flavor-packed sun-dried tomatoes, and crunchy toasted walnuts. Pretty great so far, right? Now imagine that topped with a perfectly balanced, garlicky, lemony vinaigrette, with flecks of fresh oregano.


  • 1 lb. thin green beans (Haricot Vert)
  • ½ cup kalamata olives sliced in half if desired
  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup toasted walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
