    Very nice but the roasting time is way too much. Might be okay for Romas but Cherry toms shrivel up and dry over such a long time at that temp. Turned out ok but next time I'll drop the time to about 30 mins.  -  17 Apr 2016


    Was looking for a green bean salad with fetta. This fitted the bill and was delicious - though I didn't have time to roast the tomatoes, so just quickly softened them in a skillet with a little olive oil.  -  06 Mar 2011


    I really enjoyed this. I've never loved arugula, but bought it on a whim at the farmer's market. I really liked it in this salad. I didn't have french green beans, so used regular. I tried to follow the recipe as close as possible, though, since no one else had reviewed it. I'd never roasted tomatoes - yum! This recipe was outside of the box for me, and I loved it!  -  27 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
