Fresh chilies add spice to this green bean salad.

Updated December 10, 2013

Ingredients

  • 2
    cups chopped cooked green beans
  • 1
    cup finely chopped peeled cucumber
  • 1/2
    cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2
    tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2
    tablespoons red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 2
    teaspoons chopped fresh green chilies or 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1
    teaspoon honey
  • 1/2
    teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1
    Mix all ingredients.
  • 2
    Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled.

  • Be sure to peel the cucumbers, even if their skin is relatively thin. By exposing all of the cucumber’s flesh to the dressing, it soaks up more flavor.
  • Two cups of frozen cut green beans, cooked briefly and rinsed under cool water, will save you the time of chopping and cooking fresh beans.
