• 300 g green beans
  • handful hazelnuts, almonds and/or pine nuts
  • 100 g black olives
  • handful of capers
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil


  • Boil the green beans, but just for a few minutes to keep them nice and crunchy and while they are boiling, look after the rest of the ingredients.
  • First break up the hazelnuts by putting them in a bag and breaking them with a rolling pin or similar heavy object.
  • Do the same for the almonds and throw them into a bowl with a few pine nuts.
  • Then add the capers and chop the olives roughly before adding them to the bowl.
  • Drain off the beans and add them to the bowl with olive oil, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • There you are, a lovely healthy salad, served hot, warm or cold and very simply made.
