LivingFood and DrinkGreen Bean Salad with Onion Dressing

Green Bean Salad with Onion Dressing

by Susan Hanna

This salad from Ricardo Cuisine is a great accompaniment to grilled meat, chicken or fish. Cook onion, remove from heat and add vinegar and maple syrup. Combine cooked green beans, cucumber, apple and feta in a bowl and toss with the onion dressing. Cook’s note: I omitted the apple.

Serves 4.

Avoiding Additives and Preservatives

I used Eden Organic red wine vinegar, pure maple syrup and Krinos feta cheese, which does not contain additives. For more recipes using all-natural ingredients, visit Eye For a Recipe.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup
  • ½ lb (225 g) green beans, trimmed and blanched
  • 3 Lebanese or Persian cucumbers, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 green apple, cored and julienned
  • 3 ½ oz (100 g) feta cheese, crumbled


  1. In a small pot over high heat, cook the onion in the oil until golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the vinegar and maple syrup. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. When ready to serve, add the onion dressing to the salad bowl and toss to combine. Adjust the seasoning.
