  • 1 pint blueberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened plain almondmilk, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

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

To make dressing, purée 1/2 cup blueberries, almondmilk, tahini and lemon juice together in a blender; add more almondmilk, as needed, to reach desired consistency. Transfer dressing to a large bowl, add lettuce and green beans and toss well. Arrange salad on serving plates and scatter remaining blueberries and pecans over the top.
