Ingredients
  • 1 pound string beans, ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced in half moons
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and julienned

  • Meat from 1 (1-pound) smoked turkey leg, skin removed and meat roughly chopped, 10 ounces
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat and add the string beans. Blanch until bright green, about 3 minutes, then transfer to an ice bath. Warm the butter and the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook until they are softened but have no color. Add the bell pepper to the skillet and continue to saute another 2 minutes. Strain the string beans and pat dry. Add the beans, tomatoes, turkey and lemon juice and stir until all ingredients are evenly incorporated and warm. Transfer to a serving bowl, top with toasted pine nuts and serve.
