I love a good side salad - and this one is perfect for summer when beans are cheap! It's a great way to have them a little different then normal. It's SO delicious and is set to be a new fave!
500g green string beans, topped and tailed
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoon crushed nuts
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon hoisin tamari
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 small red chilli, de-seeded and finely diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 table spoon brown sugar
- Blanch the string beans or steam until just tender (you still want a little bite!)
- Combine all ingredients under "dressing" in a bowl and mix well.
- Place the beans, onion, coconut and nuts into a bowl and pour over dressing.
- Eat warm or cold!
