This simplified version of classic bean salad is from my book The Comfort Food Cookbook (Robert Rose Inc., 1997).

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb green bean
  • 1 can chick peas drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Trim beans; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) lengths.

In pot of boiling salted water, cook beans for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender-crisp. Drain and chill under cold running water; drain. Transfer to serving bowl. Add chick-peas, onion and dill.

Dressing: Whisk together oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour over beans and toss well. (Can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 hour.)
