Green Bean Salad with Roquefort Dressing
Recipe: Green Bean Salad with Roquefort Dressing


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 8 ounces Roquefort cheese
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 1/3 cup toasted pecans or walnuts, optional


  1. Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, anchovy paste, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. Season with freshly ground black pepper. With a fork, smash cheese into dressing until well-combined, yet chunky.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook green beans until just crisp-tender, or to desired level of doneness. Drain in a colander and quickly cool in ice-cold water.
  3. Shake off excess water and place beans into a large bowl. Toss 1/2 cup dressing with beans and add additional dressing to taste. Toss with nuts and season with freshly ground pepper.
  4. Let beans sit in dressing at room temperature several minutes for the flavors to combine or chill before serving. Season with freshly ground pepper and toss with nuts, if using.

Time: 25 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 6-8 servings (1 cup dressing)
