    tigerduck's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Swiss supermarket newspaper and tried it out because my parents gave me some beans from their garden. I like green beans, but they don't belong to my favourite vegetables and I'm not a fan of green beans salad. This recipe, however, pleasantly surprised me. The sweet touch of the honey and the raisins make it a perfect accompaniment to pork or lamb. The salad is also special enough to be served as a starter.

    1. 1
      Top and tail beans. Leave whole if small ones or halve if bigger ones. Blanch for 2 minutes in salted water, drain and put immediately in ice water (this will keep their colour).
    2. 2
      Drain beans and cook in vegetable stock for ca 15 minutes or until they are cooked the way you like them.
    3. 3
      For the dressing mix mustard, oil, vinegar and honey. Add chopped onion, walnuts and raisins. Add drained, warm beans including the stock and mix. Season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Season halved or quartered cherry tomatoes with salt and pepper and carefully mix them with the beans.
    5. 5
      Serve while still slightly warm or at room temperature as a starter or together with lamb or pork (roast or chops).

      I love this salad! I've made it twice and this time I didn't use broth. Just boiled and drained the beans (no blanching either).It's a delicious healthy salad! Thanks for posting it!

      We enjoyed this alot. I served with a spicy grilled pork chops and found the slight sweet/tart flavor balanced out the heat in the main dish. The walnuts and raisens were perfect and the dish is colorful. I left the green beans slightly al dente as I prefer them that way. Thank you tigerduck for sharing your recipe!
