1 pound green beans, trimmed
1 lemon
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

Prepare the green beans about 15 minutes before you are ready to serve. Blanche the beans in a saucepan of salted boiling water to cover for about 5 minutes until they turn bright green and are just tender; they should still have a bite to them. Drain the beans and lay out on paper towels to dry. Zest the lemon with a zester or vegetable grater and set aside. Juice the lemon. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add the blanched beans and saute for about 3 minutes, taking care not to overcook them. Add the lemon zest and 2 Tablespoons of the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss the walnuts with the beans.

Serve with Venison Medallions
