Thanksgiving is a time for indulgence and great food, and this simple but tasty salad fits the bill perfectly. Serve up a big bowl for a burst of colour on the table and a burst of freshness on your palate.
Green beans are one of the most misused vegetables in the line-up. So often people boil them to death until they’re soft and floppy and then wonder why they don’t taste good. With a bit of respect and some care, green beans can be one of the most versatile salad ingredients around. They work well cold or hot, and when cooked correctly have an amazing crunch that adds texture and dimension to a dish.
This simple Green Bean And Almond Salad will be the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table because even though there are only a few ingredients, it looks and feels complex. What really gives this dish an extra touch of something special are the toasted almonds. That nuttiness in contrast with the sharp balsamic and the salty feta kicks the whole dish into high gear. And what’s even better is that it can be served warm or cold and can be left out without wilting or getting soggy so it’s the perfect choice for a buffet too.
