I love this simple Green Bean Salad with Grainy Dijon Shallot Vinaigrette.
It's one of those dishes that's perfect for company but easy enough for a busy weeknight since the flavors meld as it sits and is great served warm or at room temperature.
I prefer Haricot Vert Green Beans for this salad with their thin delicate size and tender yet crisp texture when available.
The shallot in the dish offers a milder flavor compared to garlic and softens when the vinaigrette is tossed with the hot green beans.
As they cool they absorb the tangy vinaigrette for a wonderfully flavorful dish.
These will quickly become a favorite way to enjoy your veggies and perfect for holiday entertaining like Thanksgiving and Christmas since they are delicious served at room temperature!
