Green bean and feta salad with dill

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • Pinch of caster sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 400g green round beans, topped
  • 75g (1/2 cup) smooth feta, crumbled
    • Method
    • Notes
    1. Step 1

      Place the oil, vinegar, dill and sugar in a screw-top jar. Shake to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

    2. Step 2

      Use a zester to remove the rind from the lemon. (Alternatively, use a vegetable peeler to peel the rind from the lemon. Use a small sharp knife to remove the white pith from the rind. Cut the rind into very thin strips.)

    3. Step 3

      Place the beans and lemon rind in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes or until the beans are bright green and tender crisp. Refresh under cold running water. Drain.

    4. Step 4

      Transfer the bean mixture to a serving plate. Drizzle over the dressing and top with the feta to serve.

    Make it ahead: Prepare to end of step 1 up to 1 day ahead. Store in fridge. Continue to the end of step 3 up to 6 hours ahead. Store the bean mixture in an airtight container in the fridge. Continue from step 4 just before serving.

    Picnic tip: Place the bean mixture in an airtight container. Sprinkle with the feta. Transport the salad and dressing in an esky.
