Both my mom and step-father (pictured above), Victor, are great cooks. Whenever I visit home there are a few family specialities that I always ask for.
One of those special dishes is Victor’s green bean salad recipe
For the past 25 years I’ve relied on Victor to make the salad. Never did I consider doing it myself…that is until today! We’ve been in Greece for 5 months and I’ve had my share of tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and green pepper! The selection of vegetables is very limited in Greece, however whatever you can get tastes amazing.
While shopping yesterday I noticed some good looking beans
Usually I don’t buy the long wide beans as I prefer string beans…but beggars can’t be choosers. I grabbed the beans and thought, ‘I’m going to have a go at Victor’s green bean salad!’
Below is the video where I explain how to make the amazing dish and following that is the recipe. If I only knew how easy it was to make all these years I would have made it all the time! Victor always seemed to spend so long on it but I think it’s because he had to make sure the garlic was cut in perfect microscopic squares.
Further, the Britican Galley Italian Blend (a link to my online shop will open if you want to buy the blend) really shines in this recipe. It’s a perfect mix of herbs!
