Green Beans Mediterranean Style

A super-flavorful green bean dish! I use fresh French green beans, since you don’t need to de-string them and they are also a bit smaller than the regular Green Beans, so they cook faster, and therefore, become tender faster.

Add all your favorite Mediterranean flavors: grape tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, croutons, feta cheese and you have a tasty side dish!  Good warm or cold!

  • Method: Baking


  • 12 oz. Fresh Haricot Verts (French Green Beans) (See Note 1)
  • 1 1/2 c Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
  • 1/3 c  Small, Pitted Kalamata Olives
  • 2 c 1/2” bread cubes (See Note 2)
  • 1/2 tsp. Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 4 Tbls. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbls. White Balsamic or White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 oz. Feta Cheese
  • (optional) pinch of red pepper flake


  1. Preheat oven to 375F (Conventional), or 350F for Convection (fan). 
  2. In a large bowl, place the green beans, tomatoes, Olives and Bread cubes. Drizzle with 3 T olive oil, the oregano, and 1/2 t salt. Mix until all pieces are coated.
  3. Spread onto large Sheet Pan.
  4. Place in oven 15-20 minutes, until croutons are crispy, and beans are tender.  In my oven, this took about 18 minutes.
  5. Make the dressing.  In a small container with a lid, mix together the dijon mustard, Balsamic Vinegar, and remaining Tablespoon of olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and a couple turns freshly ground pepper. Drizzle over the green beans. Place in a serving bowl.
  6. Crumble and Sprinkle the Feta Cheese and a pinch of red pepper flake (if desired) over the top and serve while warm. 


  1. Haricot Vert, or French Green Beans, are preferable for this recipe because the do not have the “string” that is on other types of green beans. They are tender and usually don’t need their ends trimmed either. 
  2. You can use any type of bread to make these croutons. They are cut relatively small for the short time they will be in the oven, so pre-sliced bread works as well as a Country Loaf. I used leftovers from a sourdough baguette.
