Green bean lunches

I'm trying to eat really healthy and I have a tons of beans in the garden. How do I make a super hardy lunch to take to work?

Take a search on this site for "Amanda's Kids Lunch" in "Articles". You'll find dozens of suggestion.

This pairing of cold pork roast & green bean-fennel salad from the NY Times is one of my favs, but the salad works just fine on its own. If you can, blanch the green beans ahead of time but slice the fennel and add the dressing about a half-hour before you eat it.

I watched Lidia Bastianich make this lovely salad the other day. In her headnote she suggests adding tuna or sardines for a more substantial salad.
