This delicious Green Bean Salad is simple enough to assemble in minutes and elegant enough to serve to company.

Yield: Serves 4

  • 350 g green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 2 medium mushrooms, thinly sliced (the freshest and firmest you can find)
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower kernels
  • 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves or any kind if herb you like
  • salt & black pepper to taste

To make dressing, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, oregano, salt and black pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Set aside.

In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook uncovered for 5-6 minutes or until just tender. Drain and immediately place them into ice-water for 2-3 minutes. Once cooled, drain the green beans and pat dry.

In a large bowl, toss the beans with half of the dressing and arrange on a serving platter. Layer the mushrooms on top. Sprinkle the sunflower kernels and parmesan cheese on top. Then drizzle with the remaining dressing.
