Ingredients

  • 400g green beans
  • 1 head of lettuce
  • 1/2 cup dried fruits (raisins, apricots)
  • Skillet

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Green Beans: Trim the ends of the green beans and blanch them in boiling water for 3-4 minutes until they are bright green and tender. Immediately transfer them to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Once cooled, drain and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Lettuce: Wash and dry the lettuce thoroughly. Tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large salad bowl.
  3. Prepare the Dried Fruits: Chop the apricots into small pieces if they are not already bite-sized.
  4. Combine the Ingredients: In a skillet over medium heat, lightly toast the dried fruits for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the green beans to the skillet and toss them with the dried fruits for another 2 minutes.
  5. Assemble the Salad: Add the green bean and dried fruit mixture to the bowl of lettuce. Gently toss everything together to combine.
  6. Serve: Plate the salad and serve immediately as a refreshing and flavorful side dish.
