- Peel the shallots and slice crosswise. Put them in a small bowl, season well with salt and pepper, and add vinegar. Let sit for a half hour.
- Boil green beans in a large pot of salted water for 3 to 5 minutes, until just past crunchy. Spread them out to cool. Just before you serve the salad, put green beans in a bowl and season well with salt and pepper. Whisk olive oil into shallots and vinegar, then add dressed shallots to the beans.
