Sunset MAY 2006

  • Yield: Makes about 6 servings
  • Total:35 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 pounds green, yellow, or purple beans
  • 3 or 4 wedges Preserved Lemon (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. In a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium-low heat, toast almonds, stirring until golden, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from pan.

2. Add about 2 quarts water to pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, rinse beans and trim off stem ends. Add beans to boiling water and cook just until barely tender to bite, 3 to 6 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water until cool.

3. Rinse preserved lemon thoroughly under running water; discard seeds and pulp. Finely chop lemon and put in a large bowl. Stir in rosemary, olive oil, and garlic, then add beans and salt and pepper to taste.

4. Just before serving, mix in almonds.

Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.

Note:

You can buy preserved lemons in specialty food stores, or you can make your own (prepare them at least two weeks before using). You can make the salad through step 3 up to 6 hours ahead; cover and chill.
