Green Bean, Apple, and Walnut Salad


  • 4 cups green beans (I use Trader Joe’s haricot verts)
  • 4 cups tart, crunchy apples with skins left on and cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped English walnuts
  • 2-3 tbs walnut or olive oil
  • Raspberry or red wine vinegar, to taste
  • Lemon juice
  • Roquefort cheese


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a rolling boil, put green beans in pot, and after water returns to another rolling boil, cook them for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Drain off hot water and place green beans in an ice water bath until they have cooled.  Dry them on a paper towel.
  3. Toss chopped apples in a small amount of lemon to prevent discoloring.
  4. When ready to serve, use greens of your choice as a bed, toss green beans, apples, English walnuts, and Roquefort cheese in a bowl and drizzle with dressing.
  5. Add a few pieces of cheese to the top of each serving.

Serves 6-8
