Local Radish And Haricot Vert Salad

 Local Radish/Haricot Vert Salad:

Haricot vert can often be found at local farmers markets or they can be grown within weeks in even the simplest of gardens. Make sure that these are no thicker than your finger and not longer than 3 inches or so.

½ lbs "French radishes", julienned to the size of the haricot vert
½ lbs haricot vert with stems removed.
3 tablespoons walnut oil
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
Salt and pepper

Blanch the beans in well salted boiling water for 1-2 minutes and move quickly to an ice bath to stop the cooking and set the color. Mix all remaining ingredients and serve (can be warmed quickly prior to serving, or served cold).
