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.

  1. Pound half the walnuts to a paste in a mortar, or process in a food processor fitted with the metal blade.
  2. Add the oil, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic and salt and mix well.
  3. Cook the beans in an inch of water in a covered saucepan until tender-crisp, about 7 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water.
  4. In a serving bowl, toss the beans, dressing, cilantro, salt and pepper.
  5. Garnish with remaining walnuts and serve warm or at room temperature.

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