Method: 
Fill a pot two-thirds full with salted water and bring to a boil. Add green beans and cook until bright green and barely tender, about 2 minutes.  

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together lemon zest and juice, orange zest and juice, walnut oil, olive oil, shallot, salt and pepper. To serve beans hot, drain them well and toss with dressing. To serve beans at room temperature, transfer them to cold water and drain well. Toss with dressing just before serving.
