Lindsay Holley, an at-home chef getting her hands dirty in the kitchen with simple, classic meals will try new recipes each month and share them with you.

In the summer, I look for simple recipes—and they are often some of my favourites. This green and yellow bean salad uses fresh ingredients and it couldn’t be a better side dish for a burger or to take to a potluck. Full of bright colours and light flavours, this one is a regular staple in my summer salad rotation.


  • 1/2 pound green beans
  • 1/2 pound yellow beans
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste



  • Mix together the balsamic, oil, garlic and salt and pepper
  • Clean, trim and cut beans into bite-sized pieces
  • Mix vegetables together in a medium-sized bowl with dressing
  • Crumble feta cheese on top
