“Tender-crisp green beans tossed with creamy blue cheese and topped with toasted walnuts pair well with grilled steak or chicken.”


    • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
    • ¼ cup water
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • ⅓ cup crumbled blue cheese
    • ⅓ cup toasted chopped walnuts , (see Tip)


  • 1 Bring green beans and water to a boil in a large skillet. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the beans are just tender, 3 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the water has evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  • 2 Add oil, salt and pepper to the pan and cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Transfer the beans to a large bowl and toss with blue cheese until well coated. Sprinkle each serving with walnuts.
  • Tip: To toast chopped or sliced nuts, stir constantly in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
