Ingredients (Organic)

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced shallots
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped, toasted walnuts

How to Make It

Step 1

Fill a large pot with salted water. Bring water to a boil; add green beans. Cook green beans in boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer beans to a bowl of ice water to stop cooking, then drain and let cool. Cut beans in half crosswise and set aside.

Step 2

In a small bowl, combine shallots, garlic, Dijon, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Set vinaigrette aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine green beans with tomatoes and walnuts. Crumble over cheese and serve at room temperature or slightly warmed.
