Quick Warm Green Beans Salad

It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s at least 2 portions of your 5 a day!

Ingredients (per person):

3 small baby potatoes, a generous handful of of green beans, 5 cherry tomatoes, a small portion of lardons, 3 scallions. vinaigrette (https://recessionbitesblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/vinaigrette/).


handful of peas, crumbled blue cheese, hard boiled eggs.


Boil the potatoes and blanch the beans and peas (they are much nicer with a bit of a crunch), panfry the lardons (don’t add any fat as they will sweat some out) and sliced scallions (spring onions for the non Irishers!). Let everything cool a bit and plate up, add the tomatoes and drizzle the vinaigrette. You can make it as rich as you like by adding the cheese and eggs or you can keep it lighter. A few strips of roasted peppers are good in there too! Enjoy!
