Recipe ~ Healthy Green Bean Salad

By activeandfit | In blog, Nutrition | on March 5, 2015

I originally found this recipe for healthy green bean salad on SparkPeople, but I made so many modifications I decided it would be easier to just rewrite it. Here is their recipe with my changes.

Note: I served this along side a salmon fillet. It made a great combination.

Ingredients:

1 tsp butter

1 Tbsp grape-seed oil

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 scallion

14 oz fresh cut and washed green beans (you can find these in a bag in the produce dept at Winco, already washed and clipped)

raw sliced almonds (from the bulk foods dept)

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Directions:

Peel and slice the scallion. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions. While the onions are cooking, semi-cook the green beans in a little water in the micro-wave. Add the pepper to the onions and cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring often, until the onions are golden brown. Add the balsamic to the pan and stir well to combine. Cook another 3-5 minutes. Add the almonds and the green beans to the pan and toss to combine. Put a lid on the skillet and let the beans cook as desired. They are best if they are still crisp.

Serve this healthy green bean salad immediately.

    Sounds perfect. No gluten is a must try.
