Description

The great thing about a strong blue cheese is that a little bit goes such a long way, saving you in cash and calories!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Fresh Green Beans, Trimmed And Cut Into 2" Pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • 2 dashes Ground Black Pepper
  • 1-½ ounce, weight Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Dry Roasted & Salted Sunflower Seeds

Preparation

Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Place green beans into the boiling water and blanch for one minute. Remove beans from water using a slotted spoon, put them into a colander and immediately rinse them with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set beans aside in a bowl

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, mustard and pepper. Pour vinaigrette over green beans and toss to coat. Toss in blue cheese and sunflower seeds. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour prior to serving (so flavors can mingle a bit).
