▶️ RECIPE INGREDIENTS LIST: (3 servings approx.)

For Blanching:
8 to 10 cups of boiling water
1 teaspoon salt

400g FRENCH Green Beans or VERY TENDER Green Beans
(French green beans (also called Haricots Verts) are slightly longer and skinnier than regular green beans. They are harvested earlier then regular green beans, so they are thought to be more tender and more flavorful.)
60g / 1/2 Cup Red Onion
55g / 1/2 Cup Toasted Walnut
1 to 2 Tablespoon Parsley – finely chopped

Dressing:
2+1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil (Organic cold pressed Olive Oil)
1 Tablespoon White Wine Vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 Clove of Garlic – minced
1 Teaspoon Maple Syrup
Salt to taste (I have added 1/2 Teaspoon of Pink Himalayan Salt)
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

▶️ METHOD:

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add salt. Blanch the french green beans in salted boiling water for no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Any longer in boiling water the beans will loose their texture and colour. We want the beans to be CRUNCHY and NOT MUSHY. It took me about 2 minutes.

✅👉 PLEASE NOTE: The blanching time depends on the quality of the beans. If the beans have been stored longer in the refrigeration, it may take longer to blanch so adjust accordingly.
Also, if you plan to use regular green beans then ADJUST THE BLANCHING TIME ACCORDINGLY

Once blanched, shock the beans in ice water for about 1 to 2 minutes or until it cools down completely. BUT DO NOT leave it in water for long otherwise the beans will soak up water. Drain it well and let it sit in the strainer to get rid of any excess water while you prepare the dressing.

Toast the walnuts for 2 to 3 minutes switching between medium to medium-low heat. Then transfer it on to a plate and allow it to cool down. Once cooled roughly chop it.

Add olive oil, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, dijon mustard, maple syrup, salt, black pepper to a bowl and whisk it until emulsified OR add the ingredients to a small jar, cover the lid and shake it well until well combined. Dab the beans dry with a clean kitchen towel, before adding the dressing. this will allow the dressing to coat the beans well. Add the dressing and toasted walnuts to the dressing and mix well. Sprinkle some finely chopped parsley and serve with your meal.

▶️ IMPORTANT NOTES:

👉 USE FRENCH Green Beans or VERY TENDER Green Beans

👉 FRENCH GREEN BEAN are basically very tender green beans. French green beans (also called Haricots Verts) are slightly longer and skinnier than regular green beans. They are harvested earlier then regular green beans, so they are thought to be more tender and more flavorful.

👉 If you plan to use regular green beans then ADJUST THE BLANCHING TIME ACCORDINGLY

👉 Blanch the french green beans in salted boiling water for no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Any longer in boiling water the beans will loose their texture and colour. We want the beans to be CRUNCHY and NOT MUSHY

👉 The blanching time depends on the quality of the beans. If the beans have been stored longer in the refrigeration. it may take longer to blanch.

👉 Once blanched, transfer the beans to a bowl with cold ice water to stop the cooking process – for 1 to 2 minutes or until the beans cools down. BUT DO NOT leave it in water for long otherwise the beans will soak water. Drain it well and then let it sit in the strainer to get rid of any excess water while you prepare the dressing

👉 Make sure to dab the beans dry with a clean kitchen towel, before adding the dressing. this will allow the dressing to coat the beans well.
