Title: Green Bean Salad with Gruyere and Walnuts
Categories: Salads
Yield: 6 Servings

1 1/2 lb Green beans
1/4 c Oil-and-vinegar dressing,
Either bottled or home-made
1/4 ts Ground cumin
1 tb Dijon mustard
1/2 c Coarsely chopped walnuts
1/4 lb Gruyere cheese, finely diced
1/8 ts Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
To taste

1. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Snap the ends from the beans. Cut in
halves or thirds if very long. Add to the boiling water and time 5 to 7
minutes, or until the beans are tender. Drain in a colander and rinse with
cold water until cool. Wrap in paper towels and a plastic bag;
refrigerate. (This can be done 24 hours in advance.)

2. Whisk together the dressing, cumin and mustard. Refrigerate if not using
right away. About 1 hour before serving the salad, combine the dressing
with the beans, walnuts, Gruyere, salt and pepper. Mix gently. Let marinate
at room temperature 1 hour before serving.
