How to make this recipe
Fill a medium bowl with water. Working with 1 artichoke at a time, snap off the tough outer leaves and trim the stem. Cut off all the remaining leaves. Peel and trim the bottom and stem; add to the water. Repeat with the remaining artichoke.
In a medium saucepan of salted boiling water, cook the artichokes over moderate heat until tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a cutting board; let cool slightly. Scoop out the furry chokes with a melon baller or spoon. Cut each into quarters.
Prepare a medium bowl of ice water. In the same saucepan, cook the haricots verts for 3 minutes. Drain and transfer to the ice water to cool; drain. Dry on paper towels, then cut in half.
In a large bowl, whisk the hazelnut oil, peanut oil, sherry vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the beans, artichokes and shallot; toss. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts and serve.
