Nutty Green Beans
From Cook's Country
We started our recipe for Nutty Green Beans by blanching the green beans in salted, boiling water until tender. The salt in the cooking liquid flavored the beans through to the center, and also helped keep the green beans bright green. We added quick-pickled red onion slices for vibrant color and a bright flavor. A short dunk in a boiling mixture of red wine vinegar, sugar, and salt mellowed the sharpness of the onion slices and softened their crunchy texture. We added toasted walnuts for a crunchy, slightly bitter accent, and fresh tarragon for a classic French touch.
Marinating the onions in the hot vinaigrette mellows their flavor. These beans pair nicely with our Turkey Cutlets with Cherry Sauce.
