Ingredients

  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces snake beans (Chinese long beans, or use green beans), ends trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 big handfuls wild arugula

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and blanch until bright green, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove to a large bowl of iced water. Drain then dry well.
