Haricots Verts with Shallot Dressing


Do you ever use the provided recipes on the back of vegetables bags? How dare you lie to my face, I know you do. If you don't, you might be missing out. They're not always great, but they can provide inspiration and sometimes, SOMETIMES, they are superb. Last night I was running low on energy and ideas, so I used a recipe on the back of my bag of green beans, oh, I'm sorry, HARICOTS VERTS. My bag of green beans only speaks French.

I really enjoyed it... the crunch of the fresh, crisp, al dente green bean paired nicely with the smooth, tangy dressing. Don't judge a recipe by the bag. Or insert something else there that makes sense.
