  • Serves12


    • 3 pounds green beans, trimmed
    • 3 tablespoons walnut oil
    • 1/4 cup tarragon, chopped
    • 1 1/2 cups walnut pieces, toasted
    • Salt, to taste


Bring four gallons of water to boil in a large stock pot. Add enough salt so that the water tastes like the ocean.

Add green beans and cook until tender. Drain beans and toss in a large bowl with walnut oil, tarragon and 1 cup walnut pieces. Season with salt to taste. 

Place on a serving platter and top with remaining walnut pieces. Serve warm or at room temperature.
