Refreshing and packed with flavor, enjoy this easy healthy summer salad.

1 pound fresh green beans ends trimmed
1 red D’Anjou pear, thinly sliced
¼ cup olive oil
1 ½ to 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/3 cups sugar roaster pecans


In a medium saucepan, blanch the green beans in boiling water for three minutes. Transfer the beans to a bowl of ice water until cooled, then drain and place in a medium sized bowl.

In a small bowl, prepare salad dressing: Whisk together the oil and vinegar, then add the brown sugar.

Pour the dressing over the beans and pears. Garnish with pecans. Makes six to eight servings.
