Ingredients

1 1/2 lb  fresh green beans
1 cup  chopped walnuts
0 1/2 cup  olive oil
1 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
0 1/2 tsp  kosher salt
1 pinch  black pepper
Directions
  1. Boil a large pot of water with a dash of salt. Add beans to water and cook until soft, but still crunchy, about 3 minutes. Strain and dunk in a bowl of ice water.
