on the side : raw broccoli + green bean salad

Posted Aug 19 2012 10:17am


Searching for a fast, simple, healthy, tasty side dish for your next dinner?  Look no further!  I’ve got one for you that takes advantage of the bounty of summer green beans in your garden, at your farmers market, or on sale at your local grocer.

All you need to do in composing this dish is taking a few minutes to clean and chop up the vegetables, and another few minutes to create the vinaigrette.  So easy and can be done in advance and kept in the fridge too!  All of that simplicity and you’ll still find plenty of textural contrasts and flavor profiles to satisfy your taste buds.

Enjoy those warm summer nights while they’re still here :) .


  • Broccoli (2 crowns)
  • Green Beans (Large Handful)
  • Sliced Almonds (1/4 cup)
  • Orange (1)
  • Miso Paste (1 1/2 tbsp)
  • Honey (1 tbsp)
  • Balsamic Vinegar (2 tsp)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt + Pepper


  1. Chop up the broccoli and place in a salad bowl.  Slice up the stems as well and add to the bowl with the crowns.
  2. Trim the ends off of the green beans and cut any long pieces in half.  Add to the broccoli and toss.
  3. Place in a blender or food processor sliced oranges, miso, honey, balsamic, oil, salt + pepper.  Purée until smooth then pour into the salad bowl.
  4. Mix together the broccoli and green beans; cover all pieces with the dressing.
  5. Throw in the almonds, do another toss and serve.
