  1. Cook the green beans in a large pot of boiling salted water just until they are crisp-tender and bright green, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the green beans to a large bowl of ice water and let cool completely. Drain well and transfer the green beans to a paper towel-lined baking tray and pat dry to remove any excess moisture. The green beans can be cooked and cooled 8 hours ahead, covered and refrigerated.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the oil, eschalots, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add the green beans and toss to coat. 2
  3. Tear the cheese into large pieces and scatter them over the green beans. Add the mint and toss again. Mound the mixture on a platter. Drizzle with the vinegar and serve.

    So happy to have you back. I never took you off the sidebar and kept hoping you would come cook with us again! ;-) I think you’ll have fun with Curtis. This salad looks perfect for spring–love the mint and mozzarella combination.

    Nun trample ich auf der Stelle und warte voll Vorfreude auf meine Fisolen (grünen Bohnen), die allerdings noch nicht einmal gesät sind, was ich also sofort und auf der Stelle ändern muss, denn der Salat klingt toll!
