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.
Haricots Verts with Shallot Dressing
2 pkg. Earth Exotics French Beans
3 T extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 shallot, minced
Steam beans until just tender, 3 to 8 minutes.
While they are steaming, whisk together the remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste.
Toss beans with dressing and serve.
