 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tablespoon    Unhulled sesame seeds
    1 1/2  pounds        Green beans
    3      tablespoons   Red wine vinegar
    3      tablespoons   Light soy sauce
    2      tablespoons   Spicy mustard sauce (mustard -- sauce from a Chinese
                         works fine)
    2      teaspoons     Sugar
    3      tablespoons   Oriental sesame oil
    1      teaspoon      Minced garlic
      1/4  cup           Finely chopped scallions -- white and green part
      1/2  cup           Finely chopped red sweet -- peppers and yellow
                         peppers
 
 Place wok or nonstick pan over high heat for about 1 minute, or until it
 smokes. Add the sesame seeds. Turn the heat to low, and dry cook for 3-5
 minutes, or until brown. Empty onto a flat plate.
 
 Steam the string beans 3-5 minutes, or until they have softened but still have
 some crunch. Remove and plunge them into a bowl of ice-cold water. Drain, dry,
 remove stems ends and place in large bowl.
 
 To make dressing, mix the vinegar, soy sauce, mustard sauce, sugar and sesame
 oil. When thick, add the garlic, scallions, and red and yellow peppers. Add to
 string beans and mix well. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
