  • 1. Cook the beans in a large pan of salted boiling water for about 3 minutes or until they are tender but still crisp. Refresh the beans under cold water and drain them well. Place the beans in a serving dish and toss through the chopped capsicum.

  • 2. To make the dressing, pulse the hazelnuts, juice and a generous pinch of salt in a blender until well combined. With the motor running, gradually add the oil. Drizzle the dressing over the beans and garnish with the extra nuts to serve.
