Haricots Verts with Warm Shallot Vinaigrette

Haricots Verts with Warm Shallot Vinaigrette


Serves 4 (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

It’s easy enough to microwave green beans and make a dressing, but taking an extra minute to heat the dressing through changes everything. The shallots mellow and caramelize, and mustard and rosemary bind more easily with the oil. Sherry vinegar has a fantastic savory depth and is worth keeping in your pantry.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh shallot
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grainy mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-oz.) pkg. microwave-in-bag haricots verts
