Green Bean Peach Salad with Pinenut and Truffle

Labels: { , , } | © 2016 |

Peaches and grapes add sweetness to this healthy green bean salad that everyone is sure to love and it gets an earthy boost and richness from the addition of black truffles and buttery pine nuts. The salad has a beautiful contrast of bright colours, textures and flavours and makes a wonderful accompaniment to any meal.

  • 6 pcs Sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained
  • 60 ml Olive oil
  • 20 ml Truffle oil
  • 30 ml Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Maple syrup
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • Handful of flat parsley leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 500 g Green beans, trimmed
  • 2-3 Ripe yet firm peaches, sliced
  • Handful of grapes, optional
  • 2 tbsp Pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 1 Jarred truffle, sliced
  1. Add all ingredients for the dressing to a blender or food processor. Pulse until smooth. Taste and season. Pour into a jar with lid and chill until ready to use.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add trimmed beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and refresh in iced water.
  3. Drain and place them in a salad bowl. Add the sliced peaches, grapes, if using, and drizzle with the prepared dressing. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with pine nuts and sliced truffle. Serve. | © 2016 | | © 2016 |
