Found on fooo52.com. Played around a little with the recipe to suit my needs. Good use of organic green beans from the CSA box. Some grilled halloumi or other appropriate fresh cheese would be a delicious addition!

  • 2-3 Tbsp
    pomegranate molasses, approximately (original recipes specifies 1/4 cup so add to taste)
  • 1 tsp
    brown sugar, approximately (honey will work, too)
  • 1/2 tsp

How to Make Salad Greens w/String Beans & Pomegranate Molasses

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the grapeseed oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Add the string beans and stir them in the heated oil until the skins start to blister. Lower heat to medium. Add the shallots and stir for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add the pomegranate molasses, brown sugar and dried aleppo powder. Stir to coat the string beans. Taste test. Add more pomegranate molasses and sugar if necessary. You want a good balance of tart/sweet without either flavor overpowering. Set string beans aside to cool about 10 minutes.
  3. Arrange the greens evenly on a serving platter. Spoon the string beans over the greens and sprinkle them with walnuts (or other nut), yellow raisins, orange zest and lime zest.
