Two-Tone Green Bean Salad with Hazelnuts and Parmesan
Ingredients
  • 1/4  cup  olive oil
  • 3  tablespoons  lemon juice
  • 4  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  pounds  fresh green and wax beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2  cup  hazelnuts (filberts), toasted and chopped
  •  Shaved Parmesan cheese
Directions

1. For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, salt, and pepper until combined. Set aside.

2. In a large saucepan cook green and wax beans, covered, in a small amount of boiling salted water for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Immediately plunge beans into ice water; let stand for 3 minutes. Drain well.

3. Transfer beans to a serving bowl. Whisk dressing again; pour over beans. Toss gently to coat. Top with hazelnuts and cheese.

From the Test KitchenVariations:
  • No yellow beans? Use all green. Out of hazelnuts? Try toasted walnuts instead. Prefer another vegetable? Use the leaves from two large bunches of kale in place of the beans and skip Step 2 for a raw kale salad.
