½ cup light olive oil
Juice and zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime
1 teaspoon sugar
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Small handful of fresh coriander, chopped

Recipe Method

* Blanch the green beans in salted boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain, then shock in iced water to stop from cooking. Cut into 1 cm pieces, reserving a few whole for garnish.

Hints & Tips

This salad is equally delicious thrown together at the last minute or made ahead of time. If you do make it the day before, leave out the vinaigrette and fresh herbs until just before serving.
