After thinking about what to make, I realized that just about every week, I cook green beans. However, I usually do not do anything special with them, so I decided to jazz them up a bit. As a result, a Green Bean Salad was born!
Green Bean Salad
-1/2 pound fresh green beans, ends cut off
-1 small red onion, chopped (or half of one larger onion)
-1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
-1 teaspoon ground mustard
-Salt and pepper to taste
Place the green beans in a small saucepan and fill with water. Bring the pot to a boil and let the green beans steam, with the lid on, for about 5 minutes. Drain the green beans and set aside.
Meanwhile, mix together the oil, balsamic vinegar, and mustard. Pour the dressing over the green beans and mix until the green beans are covered with the dressing. Toss in the chopped onion and toasted walnuts (to toast the walnuts, just place them in a 375 degree F oven and roast for about 5-7 minutes, or until browned). Season with salt and pepper if needed (you do not need much at all).
You can serve the green bean salad warm or chilled, but no matter how you eat it, I hope you enjoy!
