Green Bean Salad

This crisp green bean salad is easy, delicious, and healthy. That's my triple threat for recipe favorites ;-)

  • ~1 lb fresh string green beans, ends trimmed 
  • ~1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 avocado, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • Sea salt to taste
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the green beans and ~ 1 Tbsp of water and cover. Steam for about 2-3 minutes. You want the beans to still be a little crisp.
  2. Allow green beans to cool. Add the walnuts, cranberries, and sea salt. Chill in fridge and just prior to serving add the avocado.

For a warm version, you could sub the avocado for sauteed apple pieces. Or try adding pomegranete seeds or golden raisins instead of the cranberries. Easy-peasy!
