Green Beans are Here!

It’s green bean season here, and nothing beats eating the freshly picked vegetable for any meal. On my night to make dinner a week ago, I made a delicious dressing to go on them and wanted to share.

(recipe taken from Real Simple).

kosher salt and pepper

1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. Boil a large pot of water. Add 1 tablespoon salt and the green beans and cook until very tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
  2. Rub the beans vigorously between your hands to break them in half lengthwise. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Whisk together the mustard, vinegar, oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Drizzle over the green beans.
  4. Sprinkle with the almonds.
