Green Bean Salad

Recipe: Green Bean Salad


    This is a recipe that can be multiplied to feed the MASSES. And it can be left on a buffet and served room temperature for a few hours.

Serves 6


    1 pound of green beans

    1-1/2 cups of whole walnuts

    4 oz. blue cheese crumbles

    Italian dressing to taste


    Trim the green bean ends off. Blanch the green beans in boiling water for 3 minutes. Plunge in ice water so they quit cooking. Let them sit in the ice water for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain them so they dry off.

    Later . . .

    Mix the green beans, walnuts, and blue cheese in a bowl or on a pretty platter. Drizzle Italian dressing over the whole mixture a few minutes before serving. The amount of dressing depends on your personal taste. Some like it lightly dressed, some like their beans almost swimming. It's up to you.
