Cold String/Green Bean Salad With Pine Nuts and Currants

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Oolala

Another super easy from my friend Amy! She let me borrow her recipe box! I had a lot of fun browsing last night. I am not sure how many this serves so I guessed. It calls for 1 1/2 lbs. of beans. When you steam the beans, don't overcook them; they should be bright green and still firm but cooked. I forgot to mention cooking the beans so this is an update (thanks Sugarpea)! Let the beans sit at room temperature and serve cold.

Lovely! I added the nuts just before serving, not to get them soggy.
