green beans are coming into season and i couldn’t be happier! this salad is surprisingly hearty and i’m pretty sure i ate about 3 lbs of it in a sitting. SO GOOD! the toasted almonds give it this smoky flavor and the mustard vinigriette gives it a little kick. i think you’ll be surprised by how delish it is. green beans, i celebrate you. hope you love! xx- sarah
