Directions

  1. Place beans in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp tender. (I find that this is too long a time for the beans to be crisp and tender). Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Place in a large bowl; add onion.
  3. Place tomatoes in another bowl.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, oil, water, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour over the vegetables in each bowl; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  6. Stir celery into bean mixutre; transfer to a serving platter. Surround with tomatoes.
