This herb lends an unexpected hint of mint to bean dishes. For a change, feel free to swap in feta for the olives.

3 cups mixed-colored string beans, trimmed
2 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 sprig summer savory, chopped
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar

  1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cook beans until cooked through but firm, about 7 minutes; rinse with cold water. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl; add beans and toss. Serve.

Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set.
