Green Bean Salad With Walnut Vinaigrette

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by fluffernutter

My cousin is Ukranian, and makes an amazing green bean salad that is originally from Georgia. Not THAT Georgia, but the one near Russia. This was yet another thing I did with the 5 lb of Costco organic baby green beans my husband bought.

Very good - I omitted the salt but otherwise followed the recipe. My daughter especially loved them - she kept asking for more.
