2 pounds green beans, trimmed
3 bacon slices
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


Cook beans in boiling water 5 minutes. Drain and plunge beans into ice water; drain. Place beans in a large bowl.

Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings in pan. Crumble bacon; set aside. Add shallots to drippings in pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add vinegar; cook 30 seconds, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Drizzle mixture over beans.

Combine honey, mustard, pepper, and salt, stirring with a whisk. Pour over green bean mixture; toss to coat. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
