Directions

Blanch the green beans in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender-crisp, 3 minutes. Remove the green beans from the boiling water, run under cold water for a few minutes to stop the cooking, and then drain and dry well.

Whisk together the walnut oil, vinegar and Dijon mustard in a small bowl. Stir in the salt and pepper.

Add the cool green beans to a large bowl and toss in the walnuts, cranberries and shallots and drizzle in the vinaigrette. Place on a platter or serving dish and sprinkle with the blue cheese.

    Very very good! Added a pleasant crunch to the Turkey day table. Perfect switch from mushy green bean casserole. Hint hint I couldn't find the roasted walnut oil so I see macadamia oil. Also couldn't find sherry vinegar so I used white wine vinegar. Wonderful light taste! Awesome!!

    AWFUL !!!!!!! Used half the salt and was so salty couldn't eat it and had to throw it out. Way too much vinegar too! Was left without a vegetable dish for Thanksgiving. Don't waste your time & money ... Pass or alter it big time. Sorry Bobby, was really hopeful.
