Cold String/Green Bean Salad With Pine Nuts and Currants

Total Time

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.

  1. Mix all ingredients, except beans, in a bowl.
  2. Now toss with the beans until well coated.
  3. Chill and serve cold.
  4. Enjoy!

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

Very nice green bean salad. I especially liked the addition of the pine nuts (I toasted them) and currants.
