Green bean, anchovy & shallot salad

By Jen G on 19th Aug, 2015

Green bean, anchovy & shallot salad


  1. Cook the green beans in simmering salted water for 4-5 minutes max (so that they are gently cooked but a bit crunchy still).
  2. Add mustard, lemon juice and a big glug of olive oil to a bowl.
  3. Finely chop and crush the anchovy fillets so that they become like a paste. Add to the bowl.
  4. Whisk together.
  5. Finely chop the shallot.
  6. Throw in the warm green beans and about half the shallots to the bowl and stir it all together.
  7. Season and add more shallot to taste. Not too much salt as the anchovies will give some saltiness already.
  8. Serve warm or cold. 

Recipe Notes

  • This salad would also go beautifully at a barbeque with a sizzling steak.
