Reviews for Balsamic Green Bean Salad
"Not very flavorful. I added bottled balsamic vinaigrette dressing and then it tasted fine, but I wouldn't eat it if I just stuck to the recipe."
"This recipe sounded fantastic to me, but even after refrigerating it overnight I still felt like there was something missing. It wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be."
"Sorry, this didn't do anything for us. It just didn't have much taste. It looks prettier than it tastes."
"Excellent, delicious recipe! Will make frequently."
"We tried it and liked it alot! Did not change a thing..."
"This recipe looks good but I love the recipe from the Morton salt website. It doesn't add all the extras and it is delicious .... it is called Greek Green Bean and Tomato salad. But I halve grape tomatoes instead of the plum tomatoes!!!"
"Really good dressing! I'll be using this dressing on lots of other salads too, I think!"
"This is a good, refreshing salad. I made 1/2 recipe with fresh green beans."
"I didn't have fresh stringbeans so used thawed frozen ones. Very tasty. Goat cheese would also taste good instead of the feta. Thanks for sharing."
