This colorful salad makes a fine prelude to a hearty dinner. Walnut oil's distinctive flavor delivers a rich hit to the dressing.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the dressing (Step 1) for up to 2 days. Blanch beans (Step 2) up to 8 hours ahead; store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag lined with paper towels.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
For Dressing:
1   shallot, minced
1 tablespoon  red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon  Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon  salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoons  walnut oil
For Salad:
12 ounces  haricots verts (see Ingredient Note) or green beans, stem ends trimmed
2 tablespoons  coarsely chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups  cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley
6 cups  mâche (see Ingredient Note) or Boston lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

Ingredient Notes:
Haricots verts is simply French for "green beans." However, the term is often used for the very slender beans, also called French beans, found in produce markets.

Mâche ("mosh"), also known as lamb's lettuce or corn salad, is a tangy green that resembles watercress. Popular in Europe, it is enjoyed in the first salads of spring. Look for it in specialty stores and farmers' markets.

DIRECTIONS
To prepare dressing: Whisk shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil.


Cook haricots verts (or green beans), uncovered, in a large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender; 3 to 4 minutes for haricots verts, 4 to 6 minutes for green beans. Drain, refresh under cold water and pat dry.


Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl to cool.


To prepare salad: Combine the beans, tomatoes and parsley in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing. Divide mâche (or lettuce) among 6 salad plates. Spoon bean mixture onto the greens, sprinkle with the walnuts and serve.
