Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds haricots verts or tender green beans
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 large shallots, sliced
  • 10 ounces cremini mushrooms, very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground pepper
Directions

Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a rolling boil. Add the beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with 3 tablespoons olive oil and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Cool, uncovered.

Finely grate the zest of 1 lemon; combine with the shallots in another large bowl. Squeeze the juice from both lemons on top. Add the mushrooms and toss with 1 tablespoon salt. Set aside.

Toast the walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden and fragrant. Sprinkle with the sugar and a pinch of salt and cook until the sugar melts, about 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the mushrooms and gently combine with the beans, parsley and half the nuts. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter and sprinkle the remaining nuts on top.
