Green Bean Salad

Do you have favorite salad's that just work with certain meal plans and are  one of your recipe classic's? I have a section in my recipe file for The Best and this is one of the recipes that I have there. Sometimes we would  want a different salad to go with a special meal, especially if we are grilling out.This is a vegetable packed salad with a very different and delicate balance of herbs. Of course we always have those other wonderful salads, but this one is awesome and we don't have to worry about the dairy. It's a great make ahead salad to take to the local picnic and I am so happy to share it with you today.
