Green Bean Salad With Seared Ham
- In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the beans until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold running water. Spread the beans on paper towels to dry.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet. Add the ham and cook over high heat just until slightly crisp, about 1 minute. Transfer the ham to paper towels to drain.
- In a large bowl, combine the sherry vinegar, salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Add the chives, shallot and basil and mix well.
- Add the beans, ham and cheese shavings to the bowl and toss gently. Serve at once.
