Mixed Sweet Pepper and Green Bean Salad


  • 10 ounces green beans or snap peas
  • 1 red bell pepper, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 orange bell pepper, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, torn
  • 1 tbsp. chopped oregano
  • 1 tbsp. chopped mint
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. EVOO
  • 1 tbsp. orange blossom honey
  • 2 tsp. dijon
  • 4 ounces feta or soft goat cheese
  • Whole basil leaves, for garnish
  • Whole oregano leaves, for garnish
  • Whole mint leaves, for garnish


  1. Wash and dry the green beans. Cut off the stem and end part, then slice into 1/2-inch pieces. Place in a large bowl along with the red, yellow and orange bell peppers, basil, oregano, mint and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Toss together.

  2. In a small bowl whisk together the juice from the lemon, EVOO, honey and dijon. Pour over the veggies and toss to coat. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt or pepper if needed.

  3. Lastly crumble in the feta or goat cheese and barely stir to combine, leaving the chunks as whole as possible.

  4. Serve in a shallow bowl with whole basil, oregano and mint leaves as garnish.
