Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups green beans washed and trimmed
  • 1/4 cup shallots (about 2 large) sliced
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • For Dressing:
  • 2 Avocados From Mexico pitted, peeled and cut in half, divided
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sugar dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F degrees.
  2. Coat a roasting pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, toss green beans, shallots, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  4. Spread green beans on roasting pan and roast for 10-12 minutes, or until green beans start to brown, stirring a few times during cooking process.
  5. While beans are cooking, cut 3 halves of the avocado into cubes (save remaining avocado half for dressing.) Put into small bowl and toss with lemon juice to keep from browning. Set aside.
  6. To Make Dressing: Add to blender (or use hand blender) remaining avocado half, 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Process until smooth and thick. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water to thin out the dressing to your liking.
  7. To serve, arrange green beans on a serving plate and toss cubed avocados on top.
  8. Drizzle with avocado dressing and sprinkle with dried cranberries.
