Green Bean Heaven Salad

Following the recipes and inspiration of others is the way to go when trying a new dish or combination of flavors, but when you feel like you’ve mastered something, it’s fun to let the creativity run wild. That’s exactly what I did when I was in a salad mood but hadn’t been to the store recently — I opened the fridge and threw a bunch of complimentary flavors and textures together. The result was phenomenal! Feel free to experiment as you please.
