This is one of my favourite salads or side dishes to go with almost anything – I am completely obsessed with cold green beans they are one of the most scrumptious things I have ever had!
500g fine green beans, trimmed
Small bunch of fresh mint
Small bunch of fresh flatleaf parsley
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
1 small red onion, very finely chopped
1. Cook the green beans in a large saucepan of boiling water for 4-5 minutes, until tender. Drain well.
2. Meanwhile, place the mint and flatleaf parsley in a small food processor and whizz until finely chopped. Add the vinegar and olive oil and some salt and pepper and whizz again, until combined.
3. Add the herb dressing to the beans along with the sesame seeds and red onion and toss together well. Set aside to cool, then cover and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
