This recipe keeps well but the beans will turn gray-green in the refrigerator.
|2 Tbsp||fresh lemon juice|
|1/4 cup||red wine vinegar|
|2 Tbsp||extra virgin olive oil|
|1 ounce||pure walnut extract|
|1 tsp||granulated sugar|
|1 1/2 lbs||fresh green beans|
Combine the shallot, lemon juice, vinegar and walnut extract in a mixing bowl.
Slowly add the oil while whisking to blend completely.
Add the sugar 1/4 tsp. at a time to adjust for acidity to taste.
Chill completely in freezer whisking occasionally so the dressing doesn’t freeze.
Place the water in a medium stock pot and set a steamer basket inside the pot. Place the pot on the range over high heat. Steam the green beans until they turn bright green and are slightly tender. This will take 10 – 15 minutes. Toss the beans at about five minutes and again at ten minutes so they cook evenly.
Remove them from the heat and place in the cold vinaigrette immediately. Toss for about 2 minutes until coated well. Chill.
Serve as soon as chilled (this can be kept for days but the beans will slowly turn gray green and not look as fresh).
