Green Bean & Goat Cheese Salad

4 cups of mixed greens
1 lb of fresh green beans, cleaned and ends trimmed off
1/4 cup chopped red onions
2 garlic cloves
1 fresh squeezed lemon
lemon pepper
8 oz cherry tomatoes halved
8 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup sliced almonds

1 fresh squeezed lemon
lemon pepper
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 tbs sunflower oil
salt and lemon pepper.

Toss the green beans in lemon juice from 1 lemon, lemon pepper and a little olive oil. Sautee garlic and onion for 5 minutes then pour the green bean mixture into the pan and cook for10-15 minute or until they look tender. Remove from oven and let cool.

While the green beans are cooling make the salad dressing. My measurements are not exact but just taste as you go and keep the oil to a minimum. Then in a separate bowl add some mixed greens and a few halved tomatoes. Add green beans then top with goat cheese, almonds and dressing.

*makes 2-4 salads
