Green Bean Salad w/ Blood Orange Juice
This picture is doing the salad no justice. The blood orange juice made everything look a little pink for the camera, but it didn’t look like that in real life. Make a bunch of this for a BBQ…just don’t dress it until you’re ready to serve.
1 lb. green beans
2 C salad greens (arugula, spinach, romaine)
6 mini seedless cucumbers, or 1 large seedless, sliced into half moons
1 pear, medium dice
2 C Cannellini beans
