Green bean, Tomato and Coriander Salad

You will need:-
One pound of tomatoes
One pound of green beans
One bunch of fresh coriander [cilantro]
Olive oil

1.Chop of the tops and tails from the beans [you can use scissors for this]
2.Place water in the steamer and then steam the beans for ten minutes
3. Cut the tomatoes into bite sized pieces
4. Chop the coriander [cilantro] roughly and mix into the tomatoes
5. Pull out the beans, drain the water and plunge into cold water [this makes them stay green and stops the colour draining away.]
6. Add a quarter cup of good vinegar
7. Add half a cup of olive oil
8. When the beans are cold pour into a sieve and then pat dry with a tea towel
9. Mix in the beans
10. Chill in the refridgerator for an hour.
11. Serve with fresh warm bread.

Score = 3 but not the beans
