Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 7 minutes

Tangy steamed green bean salad

1 pound fresh whole green beans, washed, ends trimmed off
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 green onions, finely chopped
10 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

Steam green beans in a steamer (or use a steaming basket in saucepan) for about 5 minutes until bright green and still slightly crisp. Immediately rinse under cold running water, until cool to the touch. Drain. Place in a serving dish. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, water, and garlic powder with a small whisk or spoon. Pour over green beans. Add green onions and tomatoes, toss well, and serve.
