Green Beans with Pesto Vinaigrette

So, having made the pesto sauce for a pizza, we had some sitting leftover in the fridge. On Friday I went out to our garden and harvested a bunch of beans. While cooking dinner on Sunday, I thought that it would be relatively simple to take the leftover pesto, add some white-wine vinegar and turn it into a vinaigrette to toss the beans in.

Green Beans with Pesto Vinaigrette

1 lb green beans
2 tbsp leftover pesto
white-wine vinegar

Blanch the green beans in water for 2-3 minutes.

While beans are in the water, whisk together the pesto and vinegar until you've reached your desired consistency. Add blanched beans to pesto, toss to coat. Serve immediately.
