Ingredients
  • 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen French-cut green beans, thawed
  • 1 head frisee
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts
  • Dressing:
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons jarred chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon jarred sliced ginger
  • 1/2 bunch scallions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 (4.25-ounce) can cream of coconut (recommended: Coco Lopez)
  • 1 (18-ounce) jar creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 (8.5-ounce) jar hoisin sauce
  • 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Directions
  • Thaw green beans in a colander and pat dry to remove excess water. Clean frisee and cut into bite sized pieces and set aside.

  • In a food processor, add the jalapeno, garlic, ginger and scallions. Process and add the sesame oil to form a paste. Transfer paste to a large bowl and whisk in cream of coconut. Whisk in peanut butter; gradually whisk in water until consistency is a smooth, thick sauce. Whisk in hoisin, soy sauce and cilantro. This recipe will make more dressing than you need for the salad; reserve extra dressing in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for other uses.

  • Toss green beans and frisee and with enough dressing to coat. Garnish with roasted peanuts. Serve immediately.
