  • 1/4 cup pecans halves or chopped pecans
  • 3/4 pounds green beans, washed and ends trimmed
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey* or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast in oven, tossing once, until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Be careful not to burn the pecans, check regularly. Let cool, then if using pecan halves, chop coarsely.

  2. Steam the green beans until tender, about 6 minutes; let cool. While beans are steaming, whisk together the olive oil, honey, and mustard and season with a pinch each salt and pepper. Toss the green beans with the dressing and sprinkle with the toasted pecans. You can either refrigerate for a few hours or serve immediately. Just before serving, toss with the red wine vinegar.
