Three Bean Salad


Yellow beans are growing and growing and growing.  Every time we think we have picked them all, we return 2 days later and find more huge ones, that we must have missed last time, or even the last 2 times…

IMG_7454.JPGI picked up some organic green beans from Tap Root Farm at the farmers market. Mix up a dressing of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, stone-ground dijon mustard, seas salt and pepper, and add the cooked beans and some kidney beans and you have a tasty summer side salad.


I also picked up some nectarines at the farmers market to make a nectarine upside-down cake.



It was delicious both as a dessert and as a breakfast treat.

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1 1/2 Tbsp white wine vinegar

Serve and enjoy.
