Green Beans with Walnut and Green Olive Tapenade

You can use store-bought tapenade to make this dish in even less time. After steaming the green beans, just toss them with the store-bought tapenade and serve.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 7 min
  • Ready Time : 12 min


6 Servings


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, dried, and trimmed
  • 1 cup halved walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pitted green olives
  • 1/2 small red onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar


1 In a 3-quart pot fitted with a steamer basket, steam the green beans for 7 minutes until they are bright green and crisp-tender (should have a little bit of a crunch). Using tongs, transfer green beans to a serving bowl.
2 In a food processor, pulse walnuts, olives, onions, and parsley on and off for about 30 seconds or until desired consistency is reached (should form a paste). Transfer to a small bowl and mix well with olive oil and vinegar. Toss tapenade with green beans and serve.

  1. I am a veggie person, so to me these beans look awesome. Can’t use walnuts so I might try cashews on this.
