Summer Salad with Golden Dressing

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


8 servings

"THE GOLDEN DRESSING for this salad is more than just a salad topping. It's excellent served as a sauce for meat or used as a marinade for vegetables. The touch of curry gives any combination of vegetables a wonderfully tangy taste."


  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen French-style green beans, cooked and drained or 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) French-style green beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup sliced unpeeled cucumber
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 4 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • Lettuce leaves
  • 1 hard-boiled large egg, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder


  1. In a bowl, lightly toss green beans with celery, cucumber and radishes. Chill.
  2. Arrange tomatoes on a lettuce-lined platter. Fill center with vegetables. Combine dressing ingredients; just before serving, pour over salad.

    I would make this salad again, except for the dressing, which was disappointing. The hard-boiled eggs are fine but use a different dressing. Also, use the frozen green beans not the canned - the frozen have a much more appetizing color and fresher taste. Otherwise this is a salad with a very pretty, appetizing presentation.
