1/4 Photos of Salad of French-Style Green Beans and Goat's Cheese
Is This Really Necessary's Note:
French-style green beans (which is NOT the same as French green beans!) are great for salads: they are slightly sweeter than "normal" green beans, and because they are so flat they are easy to blanch quickly without losing any of the goodness. This recipe is great for picknicks -- bring the cheese separately and add to the salad just before serving. If you want to add some colour, add a finely cut tomato.
My Private Note

- 1Juice the lemon. Cut the beans diagonally into broad diamond shapes (any shape will do, but this just looks pretty). Blanch them in boiling water in circa 2 mins and immediately rinse in cold water. Cut the olives into chunks. Mix beans, olives, oil, and lemon juice, and add salt and pepper to taste.
- 2Crumble the cheese over the salad.
