Haricots verts are slender French green beans. If you use regular fresh green beans, cook them a minute or two longer.
1/2 gallon water
1 tsp salt, divided
1 lb haricots verts, trimmed
1/12 cup Champagne vinegar
1/12 cup finely chopped shallots
2/3 TBSP Dijon mustard
2/3 TBSP honey
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
Bring water and 1/2 tsp salt to a boil. Add beans to pan; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge beans into ice water; drain.
Combine remaining salt, vinegar, shallots, mustard, honey, and pepper in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Slowly drizzle oil into vinegar mixture; stir well with a whisk. Add beans to vinegar mixture; toss to coat.
Yield: 4 cups (serving size: 1 cup)
