Serve with Haricots Verts Salad: Cook ¾ pound trimmed haricots verts in boiling water 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge beans into ice water; drain. Place beans in a medium bowl; add ½ cup slivered red bell pepper. Combine 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, 2 tablespoons minced shallots, 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle vinaigrette over bean mixture; toss to coat.
Simple Sub: Regular greens beans will work great in the salad, but you’ll need to cook them a few minutes longer.
