Preheat oven to 350°F. Scatter the pecans on a large baking sheet and toast for 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow the pecans to cool. Chop.

Prepare a large bowl with ice water.

Add the Kosher salt to a large pot of water and bring to a boil.

Add the green beans; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

Using kitchen tongs, remove the beans from the boiling water and plunge them into the ice bath to end the cooking process.
