Summer Salad

I made a tasty summer salad this week with some pretty white & green beans from the farmers market. Pairs perfect with a quesadilla (one of my many cravings).

*trim and cut beans into 1-1.5 inch pieces
*quickly cook beans in boiling water for 4-5 minutes
*drain water & let beans cool in an ice bath to stop cooking
*dice a shallot
*crumble some queso fresco
*toast some pepitas seeds (I prefer mine toasted, but it's not necessary)
*dressing: zest of half a lime, juice of one lime, a little olive oil, tiny bit of agave nectar (sugar will do), salt & pepper
*mix together and enjoy!
p.s. I ended up throwing some avocado on there at the end. Optional, but when isn't avocado a good idea?!
