Gorgonzola Green Beans

This week, I started working on my Thanksgiving recipes.  I like to make new dishes each year and the dinners leading up to it are the perfect time to experiment!  For those that pass the test, they will be shared here in my Thanksgiving Entertaining Guide!  If you love gorgonzola, you’ll love these green beans!
1 lb green beans
2 Tbsp wine vinegar
salt and pepper
fresh gorgonzola
First, rinse the green beans.

This next step reminds me of my canning days on the farm…I spend many of summers snapping green beans!  Trim the ends off your beans and toss into a skillet with a 1/2″ or so of salted water on medium.  Boil covered until the water has evaporated and the beans are tender.

Toss the beans with 2 Tbsp wine vinegar {I used red} and salt and pepper to taste.

Place beans in a serving dish and add crumbled nuts {I used walnuts, but pecans and other nuts would also be tasty!} and crumble fresh gorgonzola on top.  Do not purchase pre-crumbled!  There is a significant difference in flavor/taste.

One of the reasons I love this dish is that you can use whatever type of nuts and wine vinegar you have one hand, making the cheese and beans the only ingredients you need to purchase…for Thanksgiving, I’ll use the pecans I have remaining from my caramel pecan pie.  I love when ingredients cross over!
