if you cant get chanterelle or porcini fresh, button and oyster mushrooms work well too. Use hazelnut oil instead of EVO in the vinaigrette if you have it. From Cooking Light. Calories 72, fat 3.3 (sat 0.4)carb 9g

I tried this recipe tonight to go along with baked halibut and heirloom potatoes with garlic and rosemary. I thought it was only okay. I refrigerated the leftovers and gave it a taste later... and couldn't BELIEVE how much better I liked it! The cold salad effect made better sense to the crunch of the green beans and the hazelnuts. I did use balsamic vinegar as a substitute and would probably even add a touch more, for a better sense of a dressing to the cold salad, because if I made this again I'd definitely serve it chilled.
This was a nice, different way to eat my green beans. I really enjoyed the flavor of the red wine vinegar and next time, may use balsamic. Thanks Marra!
Excellent dish! I used frozen haricot verts, button mushrooms and sauteed everything together. We ate this dish cold as other reviewers suggested and I used balsamic vinegar. I only used half the bag of beans so I'll be making this dish again real soon!! Made for Everyday is a Holiday 2014.
