This is a good way to get children to eat vegetables as the beans are quite crunchy as they are not cooked but just blanched for a few minutes.

The avocado gives it a nice flavour and you could of course, experiment with other salad ingredients if you child does not eat tomato.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes
Makes: 3 -4 servings

Ingredients
About 200 - 250 g green beans
1 large tomato, chopped up
1 large ripe avocado
red onion (optional)
1 - 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Bit of olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Herbs of your choice
lemon (juice)

Method
Wash and cut the beans into whatever size you want. Cover them with water, bring to the boil and boil for just 2 minutes at most.

Put the beans and tomatoes in your salad bowl, and add the finely chopped onion.

For the Dressing
Put the avocado in a blender or processor, and add the herbs, oil, vinegar, and lemon juice. If dressing is a bit thick, add a bit of water, and season to taste.

It is also nice with crumbled feta on the top.
