Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoon walnut oil
  • 12 ounces haricots verts, (see Ingredient Note) or green beans, stem ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 6 cups mâche, (see Ingredient Note) or Boston lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To prepare dressing: Whisk shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil.

Step 2

Cook haricots verts (or green beans), uncovered, in a large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender; 3 to 4 minutes for haricots verts, 4 to 6 minutes for green beans. Drain, refresh under cold water and pat dry.

Step 3

Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl to cool.

Step 4

To prepare salad: Combine the beans, tomatoes and parsley in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing. Divide mâche (or lettuce) among 6 salad plates. Spoon bean mixture onto the greens, sprinkle with the walnuts and serve.
