You Should Make This

It's really good.


3T Olive oil
4T orange juice
1T balsamic vinegar
1t basil
salt and pepper, to taste

1 clove garlic
1 lb. green beans
15 Greek olives, sliced
1/4 onion, diced
1 1/2 tomatoes, diced
15 spears asparagus, cut into thirds

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a large bowl.

Saute garlic and onion in 1t olive oil for 3-5 minutes; the onion should still be crunchy. Add the onion and garlic to the large bowl. Blanch the asparagus and green beans for 3-5 minutes, until they are crunchy but "done". I hope you know what I'm talking about. Add all the vegetables to the bowl with the garlic, onion and dressing and toss. Salt and pepper to taste. It's best served at room temperature.

I think you'll totally dig it. Let me know how you like it if you make it.

I think that looks yummy, but unfortunately, in my family I would be the only one who would eat that combination of flavors. :(
