Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • 1 pound haricots verts or thin green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add salt and haricots verts. Cook beans until bright green and crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes; drain. Transfer to a serving dish.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, spread pecans in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet; toast in oven until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Coarsely chop nuts when they are cool enough to handle.

  3. Step 3

    Whisk vinegar, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; season with pepper. Whisking constantly, pour in oil in a slow, steady stream; whisk until emulsified. Just before serving, gently toss beans with vinaigrette and chopped nuts; sprinkle with zest. Serve warm.
