There are so many delicious fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season during August. I love fresh beans and this is a nice summer side salad for barbeques or picnics.

  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Milk Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Garlic Clove (Minced)
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • Salad:
  • 1 Pound Green Beans (Trimmed)
  • 1 Pound Yellow Beans (Trimmed)
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Medium Red Onions (Thinly Sliced)

  • 1 1/2 Cups Cannellini Beans (Drained & Rinsed)
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Basil (Chopped)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  1. Dressing: In small-size bowl combine olive oil and Greek Yogurt until creamy. Add lemon juice, garlic, and kosher salt. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. Bring large-size pot of water to boil. Add beans and cook 5 minutes until crisp tender. Remove from heat and transfer beans to large-size bowl of ice water. This will stop cooking process. Drain and set aside.
