A simple cold green bean salad tossed in lemon vinaigrette with goat cheese and almonds.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ice as needed
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch sugar, or more to taste
  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
  • 0.25 cup toasted sliced almonds

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Make an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice water, and set aside.
  2. 2 Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add green beans, and blanch until just tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes (do not overcook). Drain green beans, and immediately add to ice bath to stop cooking; set aside.
  3. 3 Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and a pinch of sugar together in a small bowl.
  4. 4 Drain green beans well and pat dry with a paper towel to avoid diluting the dressing. Place into a bowl and drizzle with vinaigrette, tossing gently to coat.
  5. 5 Transfer tossed green beans to a serving dish. Garnish with goat cheese and almonds.
