GREEN BEAN AND TOASTED ALMOND SALAD

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

1 tablespoon maple syrup
