Mediterranean Salad with Green Beans and Feta

Here is another salad we are going to try this week! I love how it mixes the greens with fruit and cheese... I think we will love it!

Mediterranean Salad with Green Beans and Feta


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed and halved

  • 2 navel oranges

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar

  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled feta (6 ounces)

  • 1 head romaine lettuce (about 1 1/2 pounds), halved and roughly chopped

  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced

  • 1 can (15 ounces) white beans, rinsed and drained

  • How to:

  • In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook green beans until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain green beans, and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

  • Using a sharp knife, slice off both ends of each orange. Cut off peel, following the curve of the fruit. Halve fruit from top to bottom, and thinly slice each half crosswise.

  • In a bowl, whisk together oil and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Add feta, oranges, lettuce, onion, beans, and green beans. Toss to combine.
