Fresh Green Bean Salad -Three Ingredient & Instant Pot Green Beans

The idea behind some of these -use it up- posts, is simply to help us look at garden vegetables, or leftovers, and pantry ingredients ~maybe~ in a new way. This super simple three ingredient Fresh Green Bean Salad is a good example of that. I had enough beans from the garden for a side nibble for Sunday dinner, but not quite enough to serve as a side dish. So I gave them a quick steam in the pressure cooker, sliced up some onion, and dressed them in Italian salad dressing. Everyone thought they turned out pretty darn good:@) 
At the beginning of grilling season each year,
I buy a nice big bottle of inexpensive Italian salad dressing.
It's great to have on hand,
I use it for everything from a quick grilling marinade,
Actually, I've even started an Italian Dressing Pinterest Board...
Yep, it comes in that handy folks:@)

Fresh Green Bean Salad
  • Green beans, washed, end(s) trimmed, cut into bite size pieces. Cook until al dente, run under cold water, drain well. (Pressure Cooker: 1 C water, add beans to steamer basket, set timer to 1 minute, automatic release, immediately run under cold water. 2 minutes if you prefer softer beans.)
  • Onion, sliced, as much as you'd like. Sweet onion would be nice...
  • Italian Salad Dressing, enough to generously coat the vegetables.
  • Mix everything, store in refrigerator until ready to serve, best eaten the same day.
Let's use what the garden gifts us and have a happy day:@)
