- 1 head of garlic
- 2 pounds fresh Green beans (cleaned)
- 2-3 tbs White wine vinegar
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- 2 tsp honey
- 150 ml olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the garlic for the dressing in foil and roast in the oven for 20–25 minutes until soft. Remove and leave to cool.
- While garlic is roasting, blanch the green beans by plunging them in plenty of boiling salted water for 1½ cooked, but still crunchy. Run immediately under cold running water, then drain and leave to one side.
- Toast almonds in a medium-hot dry frying pan for 2–3 minutes until golden.
- Squeeze the flesh from the garlic heads and mash with 1 tablespoon of the white wine vinegar until a smooth paste is formed. Add the mustard and honey and mix well. Pour in the olive oil in a slow drizzle, stirring constantly to thicken. Taste and season as necessary, adding a little more vinegar if needed.
- Dress the green beans, toss to coat well, top with toasted almonds and serve.
