Funny you! ;-) You are calling for summer, aren't you? ;-) This looks like a very refreshing salad, yum.

I would never think to pair green beans with Kalamata olives, but it looks gorgeous. Especially with a touch of lemon and creamy cheese...yum!

Even if I hated veggies (and I don't), I would gladly convert just to eat this salad. It's a testament to the beauty of legumes and vegetables!

Wow Bron! This is the most luscious bean salad I've seen!

Thank you Tanna, I'd have to agree with you.

Oh yes Béa! Summer.. bring it on!!

Hi Jennifer, the original recipe called for Niçoise olives, however the first time out of necessity I substituted Kalamata and then decided I quite liked the bigger, meatier flesh.

Hi Ivonne and Catherine,
Yes, you have to love the intensity and colour of green vegetables after they have been blanched quickly.
