I made this last night and it was outstanding and just as delicious for breakfast and lunch today. I love green beans and this just makes me love them more.
Made this tonight. Delicious. I didn’t have enough lime juice so next time I will add more. I wish I could post a photo of how pretty it looked in my serving bowl.
Could you recommend another cheese to use instead of Cotija? Perhaps Halloumi or Feta? I live in Qatar and am pretty sure cotija cheese is NOT available here… Or would it be better to just leave the Cheese out? Thanks :)
You can substitute the cotija with feta, or another salty, relatively dry, crumbly cheese. ~Elise
OMG!!! I am eating this for dinner and for the first time am happy the rest of my family doesn’t like green beans because that means it’s all for MEMEMEME! I left out the cheese and jalapenos and only used red onions. I will be making this often!
I made this salad 2 times in 1 weeks time- 1 for a tex-mex BBQ and the other for my husbands work potluck. Both times the salad was devoured! A few alterations to the recipe:
*Added an entire bunch of cilantro (YUM!)
*Omitted the cheese (for my vegan friends)
*I added 2 avacados, cubed, on top (with 1 entire lime juiced on them to stop the browning. Total limes used in the salad- 2)
*Only used diced red onion
Thank you for the recipe. It is amazing!
Just wanted to let you know what a huge hit these are for my husband and me. We’ve already made this twice (!) and we are not into repeats. Perfect summer side!
I made this salad on the weekend and it turned out great. I substituted fresh oregano for the dried, fresh jalapeno pepper for the canned and I used feta cheese (couldn’t find the mexican cheese). The cilantro and avocado really make this dish special. Thanks for the recipe!
A great big thanks for this idea. We like green beans around our house — but often get tired of the same old preparations. This is a great idea to have in our “arsenal” :)
Wonderful! Flavorful, healthy and light on the carbs. I’m doing this one this weekend…I wonder if it would be too much to add toasted pepitas?
I’m probably late to the party but yes, warm crunchy pepitas sound amazing.
