      I tried this both ways, hot and at room temp. I preferred it hot, with the blue cheese slighltly melting over the green beans. I did not chill the green beans. Excellent green bean dish! Thanks for sharing. Made for your win in Football tag!

      Really delicious green bean dish. I used champagne vinegar, left the pecans in halves, and did not chill the beans. The overall result was a fantastic combination of flavors - a real keeper!

      This is a delicious salad! I love the flavors of the dressing with the toasted pecans and blue cheese ~ I wasn't sure I'd like beans that were not hot, but I do! Made for Summer Photo Tag, June 2012.
