Recipe

This crunchy, nutty salad is also a great vegetable side dish.

Yield:  6 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 lb (450g) green beans, preferably haricots verts, trimmed
  • 9 oz (250g) snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1½ tsp Asian sesame oil
  • 1½ tsp honey
  • 3 scallions, white parts only, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

 

 

1. Toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan over medium heat, stirring often, until toasted. Transfer to a plate.

2. Cook the green beans in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 3 minutes. Add the snow peas and cook about 1 minute more, until both vegetables are crisp-tender. Drain well in a colander.

3. Mix the soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and honey in a large bowl. Add the green beans, snow peas, and scallions and toss well. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The green beans and snow peas can be blanched and the dressing prepared up to 4 hours ahead; reheat the vegetables in boiling water for 1 minute, drain, and add the dressing.
