This salad is made not with haricots verts but with regular green beans, which should, of course, be tender and fresh. Add a pinch of sugar to this vinaigrette if it tastes a little harsh. If you have a mandoline, use it to slice the fennel thinly and evenly.
For Salad:
1 pound green beans
2 small fennel bulbs (1 pound total), thinly sliced
For Dressing:
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 ounces parmesan cheese, shaved
