1/4 - cup olive oil
3 - tablespoons lemon juice
4 - cloves garlic, minced
1 - teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 - teaspoon salt
1/8 - teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 - pounds fresh green and wax beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 - cup hazelnuts (filberts), toasted and chopped
Shaved Parmesan cheese

For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, salt, and pepper until combined. Set aside.
In a large saucepan cook green and wax beans, covered, in a small amount of boiling salted water for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Immediately plunge beans into ice water; let stand for 3 minutes. Drain well.

Transfer beans to a serving bowl. Whisk dressing again; pour over beans. Toss gently to coat. Top with hazelnuts and cheese.

No yellow beans? Use all green. Out of hazelnuts? Try toasted walnuts instead. Prefer another vegetable? Use the leaves from two large bunches of kale in place of the beans and skip Step 2 for a raw kale salad.
