– Green Beans – Tomatoes – Mozzarella – Basil

Trim the ends off of the beans. Cook in boiling water until al dente. This will take about 5 minutes. Then drain the beans and then pour into an ice bath.


The ice bath serves three purposes. It preserves the vibrant green color of the beans, it cools them off, and it prevents the mozzarella cheese from melting.


Once the beans have chilled, remove from the ice bath and drain.


Combine the beans, tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil in a bowl. Drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar over. Toss all of the ingredients together and top with some salt and pepper.
