    evelyn/athens's Note:

    Just made up this recipe today to use up some ambelofasoula (I've never seen this bean in Canada and don't know if it has an English name). All kinds of green beans would be good in this refreshing salad, I expect. Steaming time is approximate as everyone likes their beans softer/crispier. 8 minutes is what worked for us.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs green beans, topped and tailed, strings removed (unless beans are the type that haven't any and cut into 1 1/2 inch lengths)

    Tangy Vinaigrette


    1. 1
      Steam the green beans until crisp-tender.
    2. 2
      Drain in a large colander and run under cold water.
    3. 3
      Leave to drain thoroughly, about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Make vinaigrette: In a small blender, whisk all blender ingredients until emulsified.
    5. 5
      Check seasoning and adjust (you will probably find that you will need to add more salt after you add the vinaigrette to the green beans).
    6. 6
      Pour dressing onto green beans in a pretty bowl and toss to coat.
    7. 7
      Allow beans to 'sit' in dressing for at least 1/2 hour before serving to absorb dressing.
    8. 8
      Re-toss just before serving.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle toasted walnuts over and serve.

      Good and different salad but I thought that there was a bit too much dressing. Thanks for sharing.

      Exactly what I was looking for. Be sure to use highest-quality balsamic and olive oil. I didn't bother emulsifying. Just crushed the garlic and stirred the dressing together. (Note: green beans will steam in 3 - 5 minutes; walnuts will toast in a pan in about the same amount of time stovetop). ETA: This is an exquisite bean salad after it marinades for 48 hrs. Much better than the original 6 hrs.

      This was excellent. We followed the directions, leaving out the anchovies and the walnuts. It was 12-13 minutes in our steamer and due to time we served right after mixing with the vinaigrette. It was still excellent, and we will definitely make again!
