Green Beans Gremolata

Published on August 18, 2013 | America

What a great summer we had! Created fabulous summer memories with great friends that will last us a lifetime. Visited  and discovered wonderful new places. After a long and perfect summer, back to school is upon us.         With that said, we are back and back into our routine.  The kitchen is waiting for us to be filled with  laughter, conversations, homework and home dinners. I am really looking forward to it.                                                              I would like to share a few recipes that we have enjoyed over the summer.
This great summer salad: Green Beans Gremolata, was introduced to us by some wonderful foodies friends.   Delicious is all I can say. I found the recipe on line at and could not wait to prepare it. Simple, healthy and absolute wonderful served hot or cold. Perfect side dish to any meats, chicken and fish. A must try.
Bon Appetit!!

1 pound French green beans, end trimmed
2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves)
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest (2 lemons)
3 tablespoons minced fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
2 1/2 tablespoons good olive oil
2 tablespoon lemon juice

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and blanch them for 2 to 3 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain the beans in a colander and immediately put them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and preserve their bright green color.
For the gremolata, toss the garlic, lemon zest, parsley, parmesan, and pine nuts in a small bowl and set aside.
When ready to serve, heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Drain the beans and pat them dry. Add the beans to the pan and sauté, turning frequently, for 2 minutes, until coated with olive oil and heated through.
Remove from the heat, add the gremolata and toss well.
Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve.
