  1. Tip and tail GREEN BEANS, cut crosswise in half. Par boil them until just tender, not crunchy but not at all mushy either. Refresh in cold water, drain thoroughly and set aside.
  2. Cut ONION in half lengthwise and slice very thin crosswise.
  3. Check WALNUTS to make sure they're fresh (no rancidity) and grind them very fine. 3 ounces makes about 1/2 cup ground.
  4. Crush GARLIC and chop very fine.
  5. Mix all Dressing Items and set aside for 1/2 hour to blend flavors.
  6. Mix together Beans, Onions and Walnut Dressing.
  7. Near serving time chop CILANTRO small and mix into Beans.
  8. Check seasonings and serve at room temperature.
