  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 1 container (6 oz) fat-free plain Greek yogurt


  • Prepare balsamic dressing by combining the 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, and 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Prepare green beans and edamame according to package directions. Drain; combine in a large bowl. Cool to room temperature, then add tomatoes. Drizzle with half of the dressing; toss gently to coat.
