2 (8-oz.) packages haricots verts (thin green beans)
How to Make It
Stir together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Let stand 10 minutes. Stir in olive oil, and add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook green beans in boiling salted water to cover 3 to 4 minutes or until bright and crisp-tender; drain. Plunge beans into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and pat dry. Toss together beans and olive mixture. Serve at room temperature, or cover and chill up to 2 hours.
I made this with 5 ounces of beans for 2 of us. I mixed the other ingredients together and then just added an amount that worked with the amount of beans that I had. Very good flavor. I deep-fried the shallots and that worked great. I couldn't see having them raw.
