I am not rating this dish in fairness, as I think this was a matter of taste, and not of the recipe. The dressing flavor was really good, I think it was a matter of the green beans being cold that was abit hard getting used to. Thank you for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a 6 to 8 quart pot full of water, add a teaspoon of salt, and bring it to a boil.
  2. Prepare a bowl of ice water.
  3. Place the beans in the salted boiling water, uncovered, and cook until just tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a colander, drain, and immediately plunge into the bowl of ice water to halt the cooking.
  5. When the beans have cooled, drain and pat dry.
  6. In a blender, combine the parsley, mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, lemon juice, anchovy paste, salt, and pepper, and blend until smooth to make the dressing.
  7. Place beans in a bowl and combine with the dressing; toss to coat.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
  9. Note: you can make the dressing 1 day ahead and store covered in refrigerator, if desired.
