Green Bean & Tommy-Toes Salad
At first glance, you may think that vinegar or lemon juice has been inadvertently omitted from the ingredient list of this green bean and tomato salad recipe. Not so. The juice of tiny ripe cherry tomatoes, called “tommy toes” in parts of the mountain South, is acidic enough that you don't need vinegar or lemon juice, and also contributes subtle sweetness—the perfect counterpoint to fresh beans.
