  • Summary

    The pleasantly earthy flavor of black rice pairs well with the bright acidity of this vinaigrette. If you can't find it, use wild rice instead.

    Ingredients

    • Kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup walnuts
    • 1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice or 3 tablespoons regular lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon agave syrup (nectar) or honey
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
    • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
    • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
    • 4 ounces green beans, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
    • Freshly ground black pepper
