This Asian Green Bean Salad is so incredibly delicious with the fresh lemongrass. If you think you hate raw beans, this dish may just change your mind!
To make the dressing, pour all of the ingredients into your KitchenAid® blender, and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds until the ingredients are pulverized and the mixture is emulsified.
In a large long platter or large shallow bowl, lay the beans lengthways, then the cucumbers, onions, and cilantro leaves. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss with tongs or salad servers so that the ingredients remain lengthways. Top with cashews and lime zest. Serve immediately, or chill in the fridge to allow the flavors to mesh further. Toss right before serving.
