Green Beans with Eggs Tomato and Cheese

A plate of green beans with eggs tomato and cheese

My mom has been making this salad for years. As a kid I didn't like green beans and didn't ever try this salad, but as I got older I gave it a try and it's great. This green bean with eggs tomato and cheese salad fills you up. It's like a whole meal in one, and great for a hot summer day. That is the beauty of salads, you don't need to stand for hours in the kitchen. Now just need to make my kids eat more greens.
