Cook beans in a large pot of boiling, salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Rinse under cold running water and drain thoroughly. Gently pat dry.
Put eggs in a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a simmer. Cover, remove saucepan from heat, let stand for 20 minutes, drain. Cool eggs, separate whites from yolks, and chop separately into fine dice.
Recipe can be made to this point several hours ahead.
Arrange beans on a round serving platter in a circular fashion with the ends meeting in the center. Whisk vinaigrette and spoon it evenly over the beans. Crumble the feta cheese and sprinkle it in the center of the plate. Sprinkle chopped walnuts in a circle around the cheese. Sprinkle chopped egg yolks in a circle around walnuts; then sprinkle chopped egg whites in a circle around the yolks, covering all but the outer ends of the beans. Serve at room temperature.
