1 shallot, diced
¾ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup honey
2 pounds French green beans
4 oranges, skinless, sectioned
½ cup pecans halves, toasted (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
- In a bowl whisk together the shallot, olive oil, orange zest, orange juice, lemon juice, and honey. Set aside.
- Bring a large pot of water to boiling. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Working in batches, carefully lower green beans into the boiling water. Boil beans for 4 minutes. Cool the beans quickly by plunging them into ice water. Let them cool for a couple of minutes and then drain.
- Pat beans dry with paper towels. Place beans and orange segments in a zip-top plastic freezer bag, add vinaigrette, and seal bag. Turn bag to coat beans and oranges. Chill for 2 hours.
- Sprinkle pecans before serving.
