1 lb green beans, ends removed
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup olives, pits removed
One handful of basil leaves
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon dried chili flakes
Maldon sea salt
Using a pot with a steamer attachment, add 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add your green beans to the steamer basket, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and steam for about 3 minutes; until the green beans begin to soften, but still have a bite to them.
Drain the green beans and immediately run them under cold water to stop the cooking process. Place the green beans in a shallow serving dish. Add the tomatoes, red onion, and olives. Toss everything together with a decent drizzle of olive oil, red wine vinegar, chili flakes, and a pinch of Maldon sea salt.
Add the basil leaves and gently combine- being careful not to bruise them.
Top with a pinch of chili flakes and Maldon sea salt. Serve.
