Toasted Pine Nut and Green Bean Salad

Serves 6-8

  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1 pound yellow wax beans
  • 3 small heads frisee
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 4 oz gorgonzola crumbles
  • roasted garlic dressing

Wash beans and cut off ends. Cut into about 2 inch pieces. Add to boiling, salted water and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and cool with cold water. Set aside.

Wash and clean frisee, drying completely in a salad spinner. Chop if desired, and set aside.

Heat small pan and add pine nuts. Stirring often, toast pine nuts until golden brown and fragrant.

Assemble salad: layer frisee in large bowl. Top with green beans, cheese crumbles, pine nuts and dressing. Toss to combine and serve immediately.
