It's official

I am on a solid green bean salad kick.

Yesterday I made a fancy ass dressing with balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey and olive oil. I blanched the beans and then dumped them in a bowl of ice and water. It was good but needed more flavor.

Tonight I cut the beans to about an inch, added sliced shallots and toasted sliced walnuts and tossed it all in Trader Joe's Peanut Dressing. I skipped the blanching bit all together.

It was perfection. One of the delightful side effects is that the shiny green beans looks so nice on the plate!

Next up, I'm going to make a bigger batch of tonight's edition and see how many days it stays good.

Meat and potatoes, step aside!
