1/2 small sweet onion sliced into very thin half moon slices
1 Tbl. balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp dried mint (garnish)
Put the sliced tomatoes in a mixing bowl. Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the beans, one teaspoon of salt, za'tar, and paprika and toss and blend the beans. Cook the beans about 15 minutes.
Put the beans into the tomatoes. Be sure to use a rubber spatula to get out all the good olive oil and drippings. Add the onions and toss together. Drizzle on the remaining olive oil, salt and balsamic vinegar and toss.
