Green Bean Salad with Roasted Macadamia Nuts and Macadamia Nut Oil Vinaigrette

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 30m

Serves 6


  • 1 pound thin green beans, topped and tailed
  • 3 1/2 ounces macadamia nuts, halved
  • 1 tablespoon macadamia nut oil
  • For Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons macadamia nut oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons clear honey
  • 1/2 small fresh chili, seeds removed


Cook the beans in boiling salted water until barely tender, about 5 minutes. Refresh under cold water and drain.

DRESSING: Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk together until thoroughly blended.

While the beans are still warm, arrange them on a serving plate and pour over enough dressing to coat them thoroughly.

Toast the macadamia halves in the macadamia oil for a few minutes, until lightly toasted. Pour the nuts and oil over the beans.

Serve at room temperature.
