Try this Warm Bean and Tomato Salad with Basil recipe, or contribute your own.Suggest a better description
* You can use 1 teaspoon of dried basil instead of the fresh stuff. Remove the ends from the beans and cut into 1 12 inch lengths. Cook in boiling water until just tender, about 5 - 7 minutes. Drain well. Meanwhile heat one tablespoon of oil in a large frypan over medium heat; cook the shallots until softened, about 2 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and cook until liquid is reduced. Drain chickpeas and stir in chickpeas and green beans; cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. In a serving bowl, combine the bean mixture with tomatoes, olives and basil. Whisk together the remaining oil with lemon juice and pour over salad; season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 2 as main course, 4 as side dish.
