When I start seeing local beans I immediately start dreaming of this quick simple salad. Beans with toasted almonds, shallot & olive oil. I more often make it with green beans but this time yellow. Blanch beans and toss with olive oil, thinly sliced or minced shallot, and toasted chopped almonds. Season with salt and pepper and that's it! Just make sure not to overcook your beans. I did that once and it's not delicious. They gotta have a snap to them.
I like this salad best as part of a spread so I can have different tastes of all the things. It has a strong bite from the shallot so I like to break it up with other flavours. I had it with tabbouleh and a few other odds and ends and twas delightful.
