This is a perfect every day salad that is light and healthy and makes your meal times complete. While sliced french beans can be used alone and tossed in with dressing, we’ve used green cucumber and celery to add extra bite and crunch into the salad. Toasted sesame seeds too enhance the taste. We’ve used the tangy vinaigrette dressing in the salad, but you could experiment with other dressing too. Serve this salad immediately!
