Balsamic Green Bean Salad

Summer time is salad time.  The fresher the better!

There is very little things in life that can be more satisfying than feeling the crunch of fresh vegetables between your teeth.  Especially when you know it is healthy!

Ingredients:

200 grams Trimmed green beans
1 small Red onion
2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Crushed walnuts
Pinch Sea salt
Pinch Freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Blanch the green beans in salted hot water (dip it into boiling water and leave for about a minute or two before removing and plunging into cold water to stop the cooking process).

Cut the onion into very thin rings before dressing it in the vinegars, oil, salt and pepper.

Mix the cooled beans with the onions and plate up.

Sprinkle over the walnuts and serve.
