Walnut oil gives a touch of elegance to this simple side dish. Haricot verts are a French variety of green beans that are very thin and stringless, making them extra-easy to prepare. You can substitute regular green beans, if desired.
In a medium pot, bring 4 quarts of salted water to a boil. Cook haricots verts uncovered until bright green and just tender, about 2 minutes. Drain beans from the water and transfer to a mixing bowl. Drizzle beans with walnut oil, season with salt and pepper to taste and toss with chopped nuts. Serve immediately.
