"if you cant get chanterelle or porcini fresh, button and oyster mushrooms work well too. Use hazelnut oil instead of EVO in the vinaigrette if you have it. From Cooking Light. Calories 72, fat 3.3 (sat 0.4)carb 9g"

  1. I tried this recipe tonight to go along with baked halibut and heirloom potatoes with garlic and rosemary. I thought it was only okay. I refrigerated the leftovers and gave it a taste later... and couldn't BELIEVE how much better I liked it! The cold salad effect made better sense to the crunch of the green beans and the hazelnuts. I did use balsamic vinegar as a substitute and would probably even add a touch more, for a better sense of a dressing to the cold salad, because if I made this again I'd definitely serve it chilled.
  2. This was a nice, different way to eat my green beans. I really enjoyed the flavor of the red wine vinegar and next time, may use balsamic. Thanks Marra!
  3. Excellent dish! I used frozen haricot verts, button mushrooms and sauteed everything together. We ate this dish cold as other reviewers suggested and I used balsamic vinegar. I only used half the bag of beans so I'll be making this dish again real soon!! Made for Everyday is a Holiday 2014.
  4. Yum! And Yum! And YUM! This was positively delicious and SO easy (except for snipping the bean ends). I used fresh morels for the "wild mushrooms" and highly recommend them for 5-star deliciousity! Yes, that is a new word, but I'm a *Groovy GastroGnome on ZWT 5* so I can't help it--I make words up all the time! :rofl: Definitely a KEEEEEEPER!
  5. A little dress-up for green beans. I'd agree that this is better chilled than warm. It's easy to prepare ahead for a summer salad. I used button mushrooms and string beans. I just toasted the hazelnuts in the skillet before starting to cook the mushrooms.


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
