Ingredients

  • 1/4

    plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/4

    cup whole raw almonds

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    pound green beans, trimmed

  • 5

    ounces Iberico cheese (or Manchego or Parmigiano-Reggiano), rind removed, cut into 1/3- to 1/2-inch irregular chunks

  • 1

    small red onion, thinly sliced or shaved on a mandoline or vegetable slicer

  • 1/2

    cup loosely packed fresh Italian parsley, basil, oregano, and/or any combination of herbs

Directions

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a small skillet over medium high heat. Add almonds and cook, shaking skillet back and forth every now and then until nuts are golden and start to pop, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and stir. Remove nuts from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Then coarsely chop. Bring a large saucepan of well-salted water to a boil. Add beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, transfer to a large bowl, and immediately toss beans with remaining 1/4 cup oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add cheese, onion and herbs. Toss well. Let sit for a few minutes, then toss with almonds and serve.
