Preparation

Dressing: Whisk together vinegar, oil, honey, mustard, salt and pepper; set aside. (Dressing can be covered and refrigerated for up to 8 hours.)

In large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water, cook beans for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender-crisp; drain well. (Beans can be prepared to this point, chilled in cold water and drained well; wrap in towel and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)

In saucepan over medium-low heat, toss beans with dressing; cook for about 8 minutes or until warm. Transfer to serving plates; sprinkle with pecans.

Additional information :

Tip: Toasting nuts freshens and intensifies flavour. Spread pecans on baking sheet and toast in 350°F (180°C) oven for about 8 minutes or until fragrant. Or toast in skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes.
