Quick Green Bean Salad

While you micro-steam the beans, you can prepare the other vegetables for this fast salad.
  • 3 c. green beans -- cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 large tomato -- cut into 10-12 sections
  • 2 c. coarsely chopped red cabbage
  • 1/4 c. salad dressing (I use Italian or another oil and vinegar dressing)
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Micro-steam the green beans with 1/4 c. water, covered, for 4 minutes on HIGH.

Meanwhile, prepare the tomato and cabbage.

Rinse the beans with cold water until they are cooled. Combine the beans and cabbage in a large bowl. Add the tomato sections and the salad dressing and toss the salad well to coat. Add the pepper and chill the salad until you are ready to serve it.
