Default green bean salad of questionable paleo-ness

Green Bean Salad:
bunch of green beans (dunno if these are actually paleo or not, but I figure you can eat them raw so they're ok in my book)
cherry tomatoes cut in half
sliced almonds (I soak them and dry them using the method in Nourishing Traditions)
salt and pepper
vinaigrette made by whisking olive oil, raspberry balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and a dab of a good-quality mustard with no nasty ingredients (for emulsification)

boil green beans til tender yet crisp, drain and let dry
add diced shallot, halved tomatoes, almonds, salt and pepper
mix up the vinaigrette and pour over the salad, then toss

This tastes the best if you let it sit overnight in the fridge and let all the flavors hang out and have a party. Also good if you add in some leftover bacon, chicken, or fish.
