Category: Salads

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Green Beans, ends removed
  • 2 Large Dry Shallots, chopped
  • 1 c Chickpeas, drained 19oz
  • 2 tb Fresh Basil, chopped
  • Salt
  • 3 tb Olive Oil
  • 1 tb Balsamic or Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tomatoes, seeded, chopped
  • 1 tb Lemon Juice, fresh
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper


* You can use 1 teaspoon of dried basil instead of the fresh stuff. Remove
the ends from the beans and cut into 1 12 inch lengths. Cook in boiling
water until just tender, about 5 - 7 minutes. Drain well. Meanwhile heat
one tablespoon of oil in a large frypan over medium heat; cook the shallots
until softened, about 2 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and cook until liquid
is reduced. Drain chickpeas and stir in chickpeas and green beans; cook
until heated through, about 2 minutes. In a serving bowl, combine the bean
mixture with tomatoes, olives and basil. Whisk together the remaining oil
with lemon juice and pour over salad; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 2 as main course, 4 as side dish.
