Green Bean Salad Recipe with Hazelnuts
A divine Green Bean Salad Recipe with buttery hazelnuts and orange make a perfect side dish, that goes with just about everything and ideal for any occasion – from weekday dinners to elegant dinner parties.
Servings: 6 as a side
- 600 grams green beans
- 4 tbsps olive oil
- Zest of 1 Orange
- ¾ cup hazelnuts, roasted (reserve a tablespoon for garnish)
- 3 tbsps orange juice
- 3 tbsps lemon juice
Wash your green beans, top, tail them, then cut them in half.
Heat a large heavy-based pan to medium-high heat, add your oil and beans then season. Sauté the green beans until browned, (approximately 10 minutes) add the orange zest and stir until mixed through and aromatic.
Add the orange and lemon juice, allow to sizzle and steam for 1-2 minutes so that beans can absorb the flavour. Then add the roasted hazelnuts and stir through the beans.
Taste and adjust seasonings according to your liking. Arrange in a salad bowl, scatter with the reserved hazelnuts and serve while still warm.
