Green Bean and Walnut Salad (Mtsvani Lobios Pkhali)

Green Bean and Walnut Salad (Mtsvani Lobios Pkhali) created by Derf2440

An excellent salad to go with a Russian Barbeque! For a crunchier salad, serve it soon after adding the dressing; for a more piquant flavor, make it the day before to allow the green beans to soak up the flavors of the garlic, vinegar, and walnut .

  • In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, water, and oil. Mix thoroughly. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Bring enough lightly salted water to a boil to cover the beans when added. Add the beans and boil until the beans are tender, about 7 minutes. Drain, refresh under cold running water, and drain again. Pat dry.
  • In a salad bowl, combine the beans and the onion. Add the dressing, cilantro, and more vinegar, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss well. Serve either chilled or at room temperature.

    This is delicious! I've been waiting to make this for awhile and finally had all the ingredients at the same time. I followed the recipe exactly. However, I did cut it in half since there are two of us and there were no leftovers. Served this as the salad before the main dish. I could eat this as the main dish! This is a very unique dish. I'll make this over and over.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! FINALLY a way to get my 9 yr old to eat his green beans! He cleaned his plate, and ate the beans first! The rest of the family also really likes this recipe- I like to make extra to take to work for lunch the next day- the flavor of the beans after sitting in the fridge all night is incredible. And should I also mention that this is super easy to make?? Thanks again!
