Green Bean Salad with Tomatoes & Feta

This is a refreshing, light and healthful dish, and so pretty too. It looked like Xmas in a dish with the red tomatoes, green beans and the feta cheese. I made this for our BBQ on Memorial Day to keep things light and healthy along with the grilled chicken. I highly recommend trying this. I can't wait to make it again!!!!

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsp sugar
1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
6 oz feta cheese
Salt & Pepper

Dressing:
6 tblspn olive oil
3 tblspn white wine vinegar
1/4 tsp Dijon Mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt & Pepper

Preheat the oven to 450. Put the cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet and sprinkle the sugar, salt and pepper over. Roast for 20 minutes, then let cool. Meanwhile, cook the beans in boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Make the dressing by whisking together the oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Drain the beans and immediately pour the vinaigrette over and mix well. When cool, stir in the roasted tomatoes and feta cheese. Serve chilled.

YUM! I can't wait to try that, especially since it's green beans. I actually got my green-bean-hating husband to like them this year.
