  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small skillet, toast the walnuts over moderate heat until lightly golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

  2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool. Pat dry.

  3. In a small skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the prosciutto and cook over moderate heat until crisp, about 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

  4. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Add the walnuts, green beans, prosciutto and Gruyère and toss to coat. Serve right away.
