Cook Time: 10 mins
1 Wash and trim the ends of the green beans. Cut into 2–3 inch pieces. Cook the green beans in boiling water for about 5–7 minutes, until they are bright green and tender. Drain and let cool in an ice bath to keep from overcooking. When ready to prepare the salad, drain and blot with a paper towel.
2 Rinse the sliced onions with cold water to remove spiciness. Soak in cold water for about 5–10 minutes if they are still too spicy. Drain and blot with a paper towel.
3 In a bowl, add the onions, tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, and salt to taste. Mix well and let marinate for about 30 minutes. Set aside.
4 In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the dressing and whisk with a fork. Adjust the mustard, salt, and/or olive oil to taste.
5 In a salad bowl, toss the cooked green beans with the cilantro lime mustard dressing. Add the lime-marinated tomato and onions on top. Mix well and serve. Enjoy!
