This Roasted Garlic Green Bean Salad is filled with fresh beans, ripe tomatoes and feta cheese, combined with a light garlic and lemon dressing!
Not only do I love this time of year because of the weather, but I also enjoy it because of all of the fresh produce that seems to pop up everywhere. I try to visit my local farmer’s market whenever I have the chance, as I love browsing through all of the fruits and veggies. From corn to strawberries and everything in between, I love it all.
Sometimes I come home with bags of goodies and every once in a while, I buy a little too much of something. My eyes are bigger than my stomach, so I’m left with produce that will eventually go to waste.
But since I’m a food blogger, I love finding new dishes and am always up for the challenge. So when La Terra Fina sent me their Classic Lorraine Quiche, I couldn’t wait to make it for dinner. The quiche comes pre-made, so all you have to do is pop it in the oven. Pretty easy, huh? It makes for a delicious summer meal without hardly any prep work! And best of all, it tastes just like homemade dish that you whipped up in your own kitchen.
Filled with bacon, swiss cheese, and an egg white custard, the Classic Lorraine Quiche is full of flavor and the perfect dish to serve for dinner. And if you’re trying to watch those calories for swim suit season, then you’ll love La Terra Fina’s wholesome foods. Since their quiches are made with egg whites, you can eat a healthier meal, without sacrificing flavor!
Since I already had the main dish prepared, I decided to whip up this Roasted Garlic Green Bean Salad to go alongside the quiche. It’s a great way to use up those leftover farmer’s market veggies and takes just minutes to prepare. Plus, the hubster loves green beans, so I knew he’d go crazy over this salad.
This Roasted Garlic Green Bean Salad is filled with fresh beans, ripe tomatoes and feta cheese, combined with a light garlic and lemon dressing. It’s flavorful, fresh, and the perfect side dish to go along with the Classic Lorianne Quiche. This salad can also be eaten hot or cold, so it works well for picnics in the park or as a dinner-time accompaniment.
If you’ve never roasted green beans before, then you’re missing out! It’s incredibly easy and gives this vegetable the perfect amount of flavor. And because I’m a garlic addict, I not only roasted the green beans in garlic, but I also make a light dressing that covers this Roasted Garlic Green Bean Salad. So if you love garlic, then you need to to make this salad right now.
To make this Roasted Green Bean Salad, simply trim about a pound of fresh green beans and toss them in some olive oil. Season them with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and roast on a baking tray for about 15 minutes.
While the green beans are roasting, let’s prepare the dressing. Combine some olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, and a dash of pepper. Once the green beans are ready, pour over the veggies and then top with fresh tomatoes and feta cheese.
One bite and your taste buds will be thanking you! This Roasted Garlic Green Bean Salad is crunchy, fresh, and full of flavor. The cherry tomatoes and feta cheese provide the perfect topping, while the dressing gives the salad a touch of spice. It’s a must-make dish for the summer and will pair perfectly with just about everything, including La Terra Fina’s Classic Lorraine Quiche!
