This green bean salad recipe is a refreshing, delicious side dish! If you want to get ahead, make the dressing and blanch the green beans up to 2 days in advance.


  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • ½ head radicchio, sliced into strips
  • Scant ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • Honey Mustard Dressing, for drizzling
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup tarragon
  • Flaky sea salt


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and set a bowl of ice water nearby. Drop the green beans into the boiling water and blanch for 2 minutes. Remove the beans and immediately immerse in the ice water long enough to cool completely, about 15 seconds. Drain and place on paper towels to dry.
  • Transfer the beans to a bowl and toss with the radicchio, onion, and a few spoonfuls of the dressing.
  • Arrange on a platter and top with small dollops of goat cheese, the walnuts, almonds, and tarragon. Drizzle with more dressing, season to taste with flaky salt, and serve.
