Directions See How It's Made
- In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the beans, reduce the heat to moderate, cover, and cook until crisp tender-about 5 minutes. Drain the bean in a colander and rinse under cold water. Drain well and place in a serving bowl.
- Blend the walnuts, green onions, parsley, dill, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender until smooth, about 1 minute. Spoon over the beans and toss well. Refrigerate, tightly covered, for about 1 hour. This will keep up to 24 hours.
- Just before serving, garnish with the radishes and parsley, if desired. Serve as a side dish or a light luncheon dish with cheese and a crusty bread. Enjoy!
