  1. 2 1/2 pounds green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
  2. 2 large shallots, thinly sliced
  3. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  5. 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, blanch the beans until bright green, about 3 minutes; drain and pat dry. In a very large, deep skillet, cook the shallots in the olive oil over moderate heat until they are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the beans and cook, tossing, until heated through. Add the lemon juice and walnuts, season with salt and pepper and serve.
