Mustard Green Tarragon from France (FA3)
Edmond Fallot Dijon mustard made with stone ground mustard seeds and tarragon herb.
Green Beans with Tarragon Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing:
1/4 cup plus 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 medium-small shallot, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, and thinly sliced
2 Tbs. tarragon vinegar
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
1 Tbs. roughly chopped fresh tarragon
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup good-quality extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/4 lb. fresh green beans, rinsed well, stem ends trimmed
Bring 4 qt. water and the 1/4 cup salt to a boil in a large saucepan. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the shallot, vinegar, mustard, tarragon, the 1/4 tsp. salt, and black pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.
Add the beans to the boiling water, stir once or twice to distribute them, and cook until tender throughout but not soft, 4 to 5 minutes, depending on the beans’ size and freshness. Drain the beans in a colander. Put the beans in a serving bowl and toss with all the vinaigrette. Serve immediately.
