Now to a recipe that works beautifully and is cheap and healthy. Fresh, green, in season, medley of simple flavors and different, yes it could only be an Ottolenghi dish. I have been a big fan of Ottolenghi for years and I still ask myself the question, Where is our NY Ottolenghi? Well while we wait for one to open, we can make some of the delicious dishes and I will be doing this over the next few weeks. I made this salad last week for a dinner party and served it with roast beef and a couscous/kale salad. It is important that you cook the french beans for exactly 4 mins and the mangetout for 1min. The result is an earthy and tasty salad.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Trim the stalks of the french beans and the mangetout keeping both separate. Boil water in a large pan. A large pan will preserve the color of the french beans.
- Blanch the french beans for 4 mins. Then take out and put in a dish full of ice cold water. Take the mangetout and boil 1 min. Place the mange tout in iced water too.
- While the beans are cooking, scatter the hazelnuts in a large roasting tray and roast for 10mins. Leave until cool enough to handle, then rub them in a clean tea-towel to get rid of most of the skin. Chop the nuts up roughly.
- Make the dressing and mix all the ingredients . I used a zester for the orange. Place the french beans and mangetout in a large serving bowl and mix in the dressing. I did this about an hour before the guests came for dinner and it was perfect. Serve at room temperature. The next day I used the left overs with farro.
