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!
Just what I needed! It gave my ambelofasoula a great taste! DH loved them! Efharisto...
Oh my heavens...this is delicious! I love the tangy dressing, and the balsamic vinegar goes so well with crisp green beans. I blanched the beans for about 6 minutes, then rinsed them with cold water. We don't care for anchovies too much, so I left them out, and it was great. Also, I used coarsely chopped almonds rather than walnuts. Just a personal preference. Thanks so very much for this recipe, which I will certainly make again!!
I halved this exactly and had no problem with there being too much dressing, I think because I really, really emulsified it! The dressing came out really thick and even 2 hours later was still thick. We will make this again, it was wonderful. Can't wait for our first harvest of beans from our garden! Thanks for posting this, evelyn!
Really enjoyed this as an accompaniment to Island Mango Tilapia (Island Mango Tilapia). I made the salad in the morning and allowed the beans to soak in the dressing for several hours and drained it just before serving. Since I did not include the anchovy, I added a bit of salt to the dressing which helped balance out the garlic and sugar. Yummy.
Nice salad. We are not huge nut fans so I cut back on those and will prob leave them out next time. Loved the flavors in here! Fantastic!
Very good. I took the other reviewers' advice and cut back on the vinaigrette. Loved it!
We too had too much dressing.. so much so that it seemed to completely overpower the beans. It wasn't a recipe that suited our tastes, suprisingly, because we like most of the seperate ingredients very much. I did leave out the walnuts as DH doesn't like them but for the rest followed the recipe to the letter. Please see my rating system: 3 stars DOESN'T mean this is a bad recipe at all, but just that it suits us personally less... and after all, if you don't try it, you won't know :) Thanks !
