Method: 

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and cook until crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl of ice water until chilled, and then drain again.

Purée 1/2 cup blueberries, almond milk, tahini and lemon juice in a blender to make a dressing; add more almondmilk, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Transfer to a large bowl, add lettuce and green beans and toss well. Transfer salad to plates and scatter remaining blueberries and pecans over the top.
