Chinese Green Bean Salad by Dr Andrew Weil

from his website. He writes, "This bright green, crunchy salad is bursting with Asian flavors and is so easy to prepare. Look for fresh, plump organic green beans if you can find them. Cook them until they are bright green and still crunchy-tender. At this point you can keep the green beans refrigerated. Toss them with the dressing just before serving or the acid in the dressing will dull the bright green color."

    Wow! Holy Mustard! I'm a big mustard fan but this was overwhelming. The beans got lost in the heat. I threw out the first batch then started again, reducing the mustard to 2 teaspoons. Much more palatable.

    My garden is doing so well this year, that we could eat green beans every night! I need lots of good recipes. I really like the one my Chiropractor gave me, Recipe #327131, last night we had Recipe #133821, tonight your fine recipe... and tomorrow, who knows...<br/><br/>I did not have any red onions, so I used Shallots... grated the ginger, because I can ;-) and did it directly into the sauce (used only about half the sauce, and will save it for other things). We had leftovers... leftover chicken, leftover rice, and the green beans waiting for me to figure out what to do... I was certainly not expecting this! They worked so well together, I know this will be a repeat menu, with your beans the star!<br/><br/>Thank you so much for such a different and delicious recipe!
