Karl’s Roasted Green Bean Salad

I usually serve a simple green salad when I make cioppino. Today I decided to do something special for Jan’s birthday. I picked up some nice green beans at yesterday’s farmers market. She also likes roasted vegetables and Big Paws Mission Fig balsamic vinegar. I thought I would combine all of these things into a cold salad to go with the fish stew.
