DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the ends (and strings, if you like) from the green beans, then snap or cut them into thirds.
  • Using a steamer basket in a pan, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until crisp-tender; plunge the cooked beans into cold water to stop the cooking process, then drain and pat dry.
  • Toss together the cooked green beans, sliced onion, feta, and pecans in a large bowl; cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining ingredients in a non-reactive bowl to make the vinaigrette; chill for 1 hour.
  • Pour the vinaigrette over bean mixture, toss, and chill an additional 1 hour; toss again just before serving.
  • Makes 8 servings.
  • Notes: walnuts or pine nuts can be substituted for pecans, and dill may be substituted for basil if you prefer.
