Method

  1. Cook the beans in boiling, salted water until they’ve lost their ‘squeakiness’ but still have a bit of bite. Drain, plunge into cold water to cool, then drain again. Tip them into a kitchen roll-lined bowl and cover with a sheet of kitchen roll until ready to serve.
  2. Mix together the sliced shallots, olive oil, vinegar, sugar and mustard seeds with some seasoning, then set aside.
  3. To serve, toss the dressing through the beans in a serving bowl.

Didn't have mustard seeds to hand so used 1tbsp grainy mustard instead and it was a lovely accompaniment to roast chicken.

I did these to serve with the cajun turkey wraps the other night and decided they were very tasty, leftovers went into lunchboxes the next day and whilst the vibrancy of the colour of the beans had gone, the taste was still good.
