Green Bean Salad

Green beans are so prolific that after the first few weeks you start to wonder how else to eat them!  This is a lovely salad that is quick to make.  The added bonus is that it uses radish as well – another vegetable I always seem to have lots of.  As with most salads, the ingredients can be changed to whatever ingredients you have.  Cocktail tomatoes or fennel are just as good as the sweet pepper.
