  • Summary

    This holiday side is much healthier than its casserole counterpart. The Gorgonzola's rich, creamy texture offers a nice counterpoint to the crunchy, selenium-packed nuts. Briefly steaming the beans rather than boiling retains their vitamin C and B6 content.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds green beans, stem ends trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons nut oil, such as hazelnut, almond, or walnut
    • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
    • 1/2 cup roasted blanched hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
