Ingredients

  • 20 fresh green beans
  • 1 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed (skip for whole30 + paleo)
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper
  • 1/2 large English cucumber
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1/2 small yellow summer squash

AVOCADO DILL DRESSING:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TBSP red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TBSP Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 TBSP chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tsp fresh chopped dill plus extra to garnish

Instructions

  1. Quickly blanch green beans in boiling water for just a few minutes, until bright green. Drain, and ollow up with a quick ice bath. Drain again. Use [these tips] for tips on blanching if it's your first time using the technique. It's beyond easy!
  2. Dice your veggies, puree your dressing in a blender or food processor, and combine!

  3. Isn't that why we love salads? They're beyond easy. If you prefer extra-crunchy raw green beans to blanched, go for it! I find that blanching and then chilling them in an ice bath gives them the absolute perfect blend of crispness and tenderness. I do the same for my asparagus and many of my broccoli dishes too, I'm a blanch-a-holic!
