Green bean salad


Green bean salad

Course Salads & Vegetables
Servings 4


  • 500 grams Green beans
  • 1/4 Onion
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame seeds
  • Cracked pepper
  • Mayonaise


  • Top and tail your beans then cut each into 3 (size is really up to you)
  • Put a pot of water on to boil, when water is boiled drop in your beans and blanch for 1 minute.
  • Drain your beans and plunge into cold water. Drain when cooled and set aside in a bowl.
  • In a non stick frying pan toast your sesame seeds until just browned. Set aside to cool.
  • Thinly slice your onion. My preference is to slice from base to tip, not make slices like a 1/4 circle.
  • Add onion, pepper and 3/4 of your sesame seeds to your beans and give a quick mix.
  • Add only enough mayo to just thinly coat your beans. If you think the mayo is a bit thick, thin it out with milk first. Mix well.
  • Sprinkle over the rest of the sesame seeds and add a bit more cracked pepper.


Add as much of the ingredients as you wish to your taste, measurements are approximates.
Just watch the mayo too much and I personally think it takes away from the salad.
Cook beans today store in the fridge in an air tight container and assemble tomorrow if you wish.
