Sea Bean Vinaigrette

I visit San Francisco at least once a year to visit with family and friends and to indulge in the amazing cultural scene there.  This time it was the Frida Kahlo show at SFMOMA and Dale Chihuly at the DeYoung and lots and lots of dining out for R & D.  One stop I always make is the Ferry Building Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings. 

It's a cook's playground and I just love to get my hands on the specialty produce and food stuffs offered here.  The mushroom stand boasts all kinds of exotic varieties: some look like coral reefs and others like miniature alien dwellings.  I inevitably see something new at this farmers' market and this time it was the sea beans at the mushroom stand.  They are small salty crunchy bamboo-looking sticks.  This is where my dinner salad all came together: roasted peppers, basil leaves, red leaf lettuce, sautéed shitakes, and now sea beans.  I would make an Asian-Italian fusion salad!  I decided to use the sea beans in the vinaigrette to best showcase their flavor and texture.  
 
Serves 6

Ingredients:
- ¼ cup sea beans, chopped
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 -2 tablespoons sugar
- Salt and pepper to taste
 
Method:
Pulse sea beans and lemon juice in a food processor.  Slowly add the olive oil in a very thin stream until emulsified.  Add sugar as needed and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

  • Hi, this weekend is nice for me, because this point in time i am reading this fantastic informative paragraph here at my house.

  • First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Kudos!

  • I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough
    for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
