Balsamic Green Bean Salad is an easy summer bean salad, topped with feta cheese and a delicious balsamic dressing.

Any awkward people out there besides me? You know how you're doing the perfect roast and it's almost done, and you take it out, go for a spin on the potatoes and then bam! You go ahead and press your bare finger against the baking sheet and suddenly you have a large blister that is quickly forming on your finger, are you sticking your finger under the cold water and crying for your SO to help you and get the ice out of the freezer? Well, that just happened on Saturday.

I couldn't do anything for 3 hours straight, besides keeping my index finger on my right hand trapped in a glass of cold water because as soon as I took it out it hurt like crazy. Like I'm about to cry crazy. Then slowly I was able to switch my “medication” from ice water to aloe and today there is almost no trace of the ugly blister on my finger. I can't believe it, but aloe really works wonders, even with severe burns. Did you ever get burned while cooking? 😀

Anyway, today I am back to normal and I am happy and grateful to be able to write, although the hot water on my finger still bothers me. But we will get there.

So while the hot stuff is a bit off-limits, and it's still summer, here is a simple but excellent recipe for a delicious balsamic green bean salad with feta cheese.

This balsamic green bean salad is really easy to make and Mitja loves it. I don't do it because I hate, I don't like beans (just kidding, I hate them), but if you do, go ahead and give it a try 🙂 These green beans came from our little garden and cooked for only about 15 minutes, until it's soft but crunchy. Then drain the beans and cool them, dress them with a balsamic dressing and top with a little crumbled feta cheese (or even tofu for our vegan friends) and some cherry tomatoes cut in half. And that's it! A healthy and delicious dinner or accompaniment in just 15 minutes.

Balsamic Green Bean Salad is an easy summer bean salad, topped with feta cheese and a delicious balsamic dressing.


  • 100 grams of green beans
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or pumpkin seed oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or sliced
  • 1/2 cup of feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes


  1. Wash and dry the green beans, then cut off the tops on either side of each bean, removing the hard strings.
  2. Boil a pot of water, season with salt and add green beans. Cook the beans about 15 minutes or until tender enough that you can easily stick a fork into the beans. Drain and cool.
  3. Assemble your balsamic dressing. Combine garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar and mix well. Pour dressing over chilled beans and toss. Top the salad with crumbled feta cheese and a couple of cherry tomatoes and serve.
