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
½ red onion (optional)
1 - 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Bit of olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Herbs of your choice
¼ 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
