Directions

Green Bean and Carrot Slaw

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. While you're waiting, peel and grate carrots coarsely into a large bowl. Pulse pistachios in a food processor until they are crumbs.
  2. Blanche the green beans: place in boiling water just until bright green and tender. Drain and plunge beans into cold water to stop the cooking.
  3. Trim green beans and chop finely, horizontally. Toss together green beans with carrots and vinaigrette. Add pistachios immediately before serving.

Avocado-Cilantro vinaigrette

  1. Blend together the first three ingredients in a blender or food processor. Add olive oil in a steady stream. Add salt and adjust to taste.
