Method

Can be made earlier in the day. Snip off the tops, but not the curly tails (they look better rustic-style), from the green beans. Boil in salted water for 3 mins until just tender. Get a bowl of iced water ready. Drain the beans and plunge into the water for 3 mins, then drain well and tip out onto a plate. Finely chop the shallot, scatter over the beans and sprinkle with some vinaigrette. Set aside to cool.

I usually add some minced garlic along with the shallots, and I use coarse grain mustard in my vinaigrette.

This is a lovely dish, made it some time ago for a dinner party and then couldn't find the recipe for ages, so had to improvise. Really tasty for so few ingredients

This is very easy to make and so good that even my veg-averse daughter enjoyed it.
