    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I usually make this fantastic salad when green beans are plentiful in my veggie garden. This is one of the best green bean salads you will ever have! please don't leave out the kalamata olives or hazelnuts, it's what makes this salad! Prepare ahead this salad needs to chill for a minimum of 3 hours before serving. Also all ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. Double or triple the ingredients to serve a crowd!

      I've had this recipe in my cookbook since the day it was published, and I am thrilled that I finally made it. This salad has such wonderful flavor, neither sour nor sweet, but a perfect balance with just that touch of honey. The olives give just enough salt to marry all of the other flavors. I did halve the recipe, an the only change I made was to cut back on the amount of oil. I made this in th morning, and by dinner the flavors were perfect. Do make this one ahead so that it has time to marinate. Thank you Kittencal for sharing the recipe - leftovers at lunch were even better.
